Before putting my birds to bed every night, I always say, "Night night" while either turning lights off or kissing them goodnight and closing the door. They used to vocalize with quick chirps to acknowledge it was bed time, but eventually they all picked up on it and began saying "night night" on their own when they realize it's getting dark. The above video shows Bandit, my galah, saying night night because Dave had turned off the light in the bird room for the others and they were chirping. So he said night night followed by thank you... for the rest of the flock!
