I use an oil-filled radiator between Peppy's sleep cage and the window, and have never tried one of the little heaters. If you get one I'll be interested to read what you think. Keep in mind that you may have to introduce it very slowly. Parrots can freak out about new things, sometimes even across the room.

Haven't ran into that yet, but a new person (to the bird) entered my home the other day, and as soon as she was in sight of the bird (which was about 20 feet away) he flipped out and fell to the bottom of his cage. I'm not sure if she caught him off guard or what, I wouldn't think so as she was talking before he was able to see her.
I've never seen one of these before. It seems like it could be something a bird would really like, although I might be nervous about having an electrical device in the cage... but it seems pretty well made, so perhaps that would be a silly concern. Seems like it has a lot of positive reviews!
I know this is on older thread. But I have had a radiant heat panal for my green cheek conures for 16 years! And they love it!! It hangs on the back of the cage in an unused corner with a perch in front if it. They go there every time they have had a bath and sit in front if it till they dry. Even on non bath days they spend some time cuddle up to it. I moved it to the quaker cage when I brought home my new baby. But I found he had no use for it. He wasn't scared of it just seems he would over heat. So it's back with my green cheek. She uses it, and when it was gone would shiver after her bath without it.
