    Greetings Liz and welcome to the board,
    Did you stop your evening playtime when you switched

    still play with him in the evening when you get home at 11pm?
    Your best bet, wean him down to fewer hours. He is
    chirping and carrying on because he is calling to you. He
    knows your home and he wants to be with you. Try playing
