    We got to -1 here, I thought that was quite a feat
    But yes, max daytime temps are more bearable than what you would endure

    Have you maybe thought about draping a pig blanket on one side? They are used for large tortoises that winter outside and are durable. They do have a plug and they are kinda spendy but I would think they would be every bit as effective for birds. My only other thought was a ceramic heat emitter.

    Here is a link of a company i have used:

I have the aviary fully covered but I was wondering what else you guys do to keep the birds warm during winter.
    I buy the industrial sized cling film and go round and round and round the aviary, it's 2x2metres. I cover the top 3/4 so that it is protected from the rain and wind but has plenty ventilation, you can see the birds and they receive the daylight. Works well for my budgies and zebra finches.
