Due to high medical bills I am forced to put on extra cloths rather then heat during the winter. My condo will get a cool as 54F on a few days with no drafts. In the summer months it is humid and gets as warm as the low 90s with drafts from fans in use. Are there any breeds of pet birds would thrive in this environment
? Thx

I keep the temperature in my condo well below that and my AG has no problem. It's never been 90s in my condo, but I'd assume she have no problem with that either as long it wasn't in direct sun light and had water.

Sorry, but I have to ask: if things are so tough and lean financially, just how can you afford a parrot?

Oh boy, now you're going to start the "poor people should be able to have pets too" debate !
I wondered the same thing.

Most birds would have little trouble with it as long as the temperature transitions are not too sudden. For example Greater sulphur crested cockatoos in aviaries have been seen playing in snow, yet in the wild few would ever see snow.
Most of the larger (parrots, Macaws, Cockatoos) birds are actually very hardy, and 54F won't bother them in the least. They are for the most part tropical animals, so temps in the 90's aren't a problem either.

We had cold nights out, the last 2 nights, and the house got down in the upper 50's, and I have noticed that our lovebird usually sits on the perch in his cage in the mornings and raises a racket until we let him out, but yesterday morning he was sitting in his happy hut and chirping away. It was funny! I let him out anyway, but this last day or so he's been a little slow and less playful because of the chilly temps in the house.

It's winter here and I find it hard to keep my place warm (big rooms, high ceilings, large windows, crappy heaters). Sid (macaw) doesn't seem to mind - he just fluffs himself up. He's probably warmer than I am.
The change in my lifestyle is under my full control. Considering getting a pet bird is where I would rather spend my money then say, dating. Dating has a poor cost to enjoyment ratio. My last pet was a cat that had been beaten and lost the use of the left lung. I never cared for cats until the police department brought me this one to care for. With love and monthly medication she was a great pet for six years. When cancer forced me to put her down I held her to the end. Lots of love, some pain but a great cost to enjoyment ratio. Hope I don't sound flip. The money is there for the next pet and a bird strikes me as one to consider.

My concern would be YOUR health.
