help with a technical term

I’m writing a story set in a tower (actually an aviary) where instead of windows they have openings in the wall. It’s kind of a window only instead of glass you just have an opening where fresh air comes through.

The problem is, I can’t remember for the life of me what this kind of thing is called. It’s not a balcony because you can’t actually walk out onto it, nor is it a window, because there’s not glass you can close. There’s just an opening in the wall where light and breeze can come in. Unless I’m mistaken Can you call this a window? Or what’s appropriate?

Because, this is driving me absolutely batty. Not that I ever had far to go on that count, but does anyone want to help a girl out? Pretty please?
