Opening window near perch?

Rocky has a nice perch right in front of a window. It's been pretty cold lately and today it's actually warm enough to walk outside and not start shaking. His previous owners said they took him outside all the time but im not risking it. It's 59 degrees f here and I was wondering is that too cold to open the window for rocky? Figured it would be good for him to get a breeze and fresh air but idk what's too cold for him. We keep our house between 68-70 degrees. At night it drops to around 66. But we have a heater near his cage that comes on when it hits anything below 68.

Beautiful baby you have there..dont know much about your species and where you live. For the past 3 days here in Miami its been from upper fifties to lover fortys at night! It almost gone though. I take my U2 out even in the fiftys if it's sunny out. Yesterday I opened up my sliding door and let the breeze in...how he LUVS that fresh air. It was chilly but not cold. Maybe you can just crack a bit & let him get use to the change from inside to outside breeze.

Lol I'm not sure. I'm not good with my directions. Haha. But he loves it. It's warmed up some more and there are wild birds coming to the window and he keeps saying hello, hello, Rocky is pretty. Lol. I'm playing some music too so hes dancing, which he never does!

I'm sure he'd love it. I have birds outside in - weather in winter and they're happy as can be in it
