Remember these are desert birds, so they have the ability to withstand great heat and a certain amount of cold. I cant really have a heater out there without them either burning themselves on it, or the wood catching fire...I also have no electricity in the back garden

Basically these are questions we are going to address the experts across the summer so that next winter we are prepared, but for now, the worst is behind us and we should be getting reasonable weather from now on...if it really gets VERY cold, frosty or worse...I will probably stuff them back in their cages and bring them in for the nights

The tennis ball bird is called Jojo
Oh, yeah, "JoJo"! Who was "Mike" named after?
