Re: New England hazards?

Birds are crazy adaptable when it comes to temperatures -- there was one guy here who was slightly alarmed his macaws were nesting on the ground at minus two degrees (your 28.4 Fahrenheit) in the snow. He had removed the nestbox earlier because well ...winter and they had the choice of going inside, warm sleeping quarters etc.! Apperantly it is something they do sometimes...

As always: let them choose, do not force.

But I would not leave any bird outside for very long unsupervised.
Accidents can happen if you are away 2 minutes just as likely as if you are away 2 hours, but damagecontroll is possible faster in the former scenario.
