It does sound like everything is fine. Does your bird have something to KEEP him busy like toys? You mentioned chewing so I assume he has something. A lot of times birds will sleep if there bored and have nothing to keep them entertained. Do you allow him much out of cage time? If this pattern continues, you might want to plan a trip to an Avian (if possible) vet.

Maybe he is not getting a proper nap outside the cage, they are still very alert when out, can relax more inside, try putting him inside for a good rest then have him out again. My tiel is 8 months and also been a sleepyhead, I have her out about 2hrs on a morning, 2hrs afternoon and 1hr evening, put her to bed about 7.30. Routine when she can sleep well inside her cage. (And she still has the odd 5mins nap when she is out) just a suggestion to try.
