I live in the mid-southern U.S. This time of year (and in the Fall) when the temperatures are in the 50's (Farenheit) at night, I like to sleep with my windows open. But I don't want Peaches to get cold. I do cover her cage at night. Will she be fine with the cooler temp? Or should I move her cage to a room towards the front of the house where the cooler air will not waft in? She's in the living room but I leave my bedroom door open so the cat can wander.

Jill,
Just be sure that she's not in any kind of draft no matter how slight. We turn our temps down at night, to 68, cover the birds (who have their snuggly tents), and they are fine.

Thank you. I'm careful she's not in a breeze. She's still fluffing up and grinding her beak when I sing my silly songs to her. Sometimes she chirps along. The manzanita wood perch just arrived and I fastened it to the cage... she's cocking her head at it, thinking hmmm, what's that thing?

I too sleep with my windows open and it gets down to minus 5 celcius here and I wouldn't have any of my birds in my bedroom, a/ cos I don't think it is healthy for me to breath in feather dust while I sleep, and b/ cos it would be too cold or draughty.
The drop in temperatrure from heated during the day to cold at night might cause problems. I would say keep her in another room way out of the line of any draughts.

Oh and its healthy to breath in feather dust while awake?

At least she didn't spread her wings and hiss at it, like Moki did his exercise wheel!

As long as you keep them out of drafts, most birds are pretty tough when it comes to temperatures. I doubt it going to bother her.

During the day I am not constantly in one room, in fact not always indoors, and I have a window or door open. At night I would be in the room with my body's defences on low too. Plus the poor bird would freeze to death hehe.
