I came into possession of a blue fronted amazon 6 months ago,so this will be the first winter she has been with us. I am concerned of the cold months that lay ahead of us as we usually only have the heating on late afternoon to late evening. We never leave it on overnight... Do I need to use any kind of heat lamp on her for the winter months? Any info much appreciated... thanks

Nearly all the sites say much of the same.

"It is possible to keep these birds inside at room temperature, but the cage must be well off the floor away from potential drafts as this is a bird that does not appreciate changes in temperature.".

Keeping them covered at night maybe with a thick-ish blanket helps keep the draft away.

Hi Queenie,always make sure the little one is covered at night time, parrots always fluff their feathers to trap heat and warmth in. make sure there is a decent temp in the room that the bird lives in, some people use an infra red heat lamp, I don't use one for our two as I dont trust them, just keep the heating ticking over if unsure. other than that your feathered boss will be fine.
Also include some warm veg in her cage for her aswell.

above all enjoy the fun that she'll bring to the house, they change the whole dynamic of the home and it'll soon feel like she belongs, a good tip for boredom breaker toys. the joining links that you can buy in the Baby section of the supermarkets and toy stores are the same as the parrot toy sites and 10 times cheaper

Hi tonyh , took zeb ~(parrot) to see rob mcnulty for a check up, she had a manicure while she was there. good god she made one hell of a racket, and had a right gob on for about 2 days... thanks for advice on toys. I have sooooo much to learn about these sensitive little creatures.
