With the impending change of seasons, does anyone know the preferred indoor temperature range for sun conures? 

Thanks in advance!

Here’s an article that may be helpful to you: http://www.birdchannel.com/bird-diet-and-health/bird-care/ideal-temperatures-for-birds.aspx

In general terms, if you’re comfortable with the temperature then your Sun Conure will be comfortable. As long as your bird has had a chance to slowly adjust to cooler temperatures, then you should have no problems. The temperature in my home during the winter is in the low 60’s. Pepper has done fine and showed no problems with these temperatures during the past three winters. Overnight, the temperature is in the high 50’s.

To allow your Sun Conure to get some extra warmth if wanted, you could consider providing a Thermo Perch (http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=10899) for warmth.

I hope this information is of some help to you.

Thanks for your help.  I'm a bit cold-natured and thought maybe Teq might be too.  Good to hear that he'll be fine even when I'm chilly!

I live in Florida so my fids are not really used to cooler temperatures (higher ones, yeah). I keep the house at 68 degrees or above. However it is almost always 75-80 degrees in my house most of the year. I fully agree with everything Pepper's Pa said. As long as you are comfortable, the fids should be too. If it gets cold unexpectedly, you may want to cover the cage or put the cage in a warmer area.

K&T Dad... Also remember to keep fids a way from "drafts", and heating vents
