Should I cover my bird's cage at night?

I've seen that pet stores sell blankets to cover birds cages at night. Are they necessary? Why would they need them?

Sometimes birds have what is called "night frights". A fluttering curtain, a car's headlights shining through the window, sudden noises and more can upset them. Often covering the cage to keep out disturbances can help. If your bird feels more secure with the cage covered, then by all means do so.
