Jester had two homes before he came to me. He lived with a woman for about 5 years, and was then given to a couple. He lived with them for about 11 years. The husband was in the military, and they had to move a lot. He had bonded with the brother in law lived with them for a while. When he moved out, Jester got upset, and got angry with the couple. They locked him in a small chicken wire cage for two years before surrendering him to Parrots as Pets rescue.

Jester was being fostered by my friend on the bird channel forum. I really enjoyed his posts about him. I got to meet him at a bird club meeting, and fell in love with him. My mom fell in love with him too, and even my dad liked him. Sadly, he was going to be adopted by another woman. About two weeks later, I got a PM from my friend saying that Jester's adoption had fallen through. I was so happy, and was so excited to tell my mom. The next day we went out a got a cage for him, and on Sunday we picked him up! :)

Hi! My name is Jester Bean

I am a Citron-Crested Cockatoo from Clermont, FL.

His name is Jester Bean! Sir Jester Bean when I'm feeling fancy. XD

He also gets called Jess, Jessie, Jay, Bean, Bean Bean, and Beanie.


18 years old   M

Citron-Crested Cockatoo

Almonds, nutri-berries, avi-cakes, grapes, broccoli stems,

On anyone's shoulder, outside with grandma, with grandpa. Sometimes with mom. XD (For some reason even though I care for him, clean his cage, feed him, and buy everything for him he seems to like me the least. :( )

He doesn't seem to like my sister, he gets really nervous when she walks in.

She adopted me and gave me a wonderful home!

He balances many pieces of food on his foot while he is eating..

  Hi Jester
If your mom and family are coming to Pittsburgh, please let my mom know, she can show them around! She loves doing that! I heard you are the next guy running for BOTM, can't wait.
Mom has a booboo on her leg that she didn't even know happened. Yesterday when she left the museum, the car door slammed into her shin (because she's clumsy sometimes) and it hurt, but mom didn't think anything of it. Last night when she was getting ready for bed, she saw that she had bled on her khaki pants! There was a huge wound on her leg as well. It doesn't hurt, but it will take awhile to heal.
Today mom worked in the avian nursery, and she had the 20 minute timer as well. Every 20 minutes she had to feed the smallest babies in the incubator, and of course, clean their nests and paper underneath, too, because what's going in one end seems to push out what's at the other end. She managed, between 20 and 45 minute feedings, to clean only 6 other cages. The avian nursery is pretty full right now, with robins, sparrows, starlings, mourning doves, pigeons, a cedar waxwing, a woodpecker, a little screech owl, crows, etc. The 6b ducklings in one of the cages got a fake mom today. Mom found the decoys they use for moms, and popped one in there on the heating pad. The babies will gather round it for comfort once it heats up a little.
After the center, she went shopping for fruits and veggies for us. Now she's home, and after doing our blogs, will plant the strawberry, gooseberry, and peppers that our neighbor left for us. We are under a frost advisory for tonight, so mom will have to look for some sheets for the tender stuff she is planting today. Everything else should be okay.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Jester Bean!
That is so egg citing that you will run for BoTM in June! I have an idea for your campaign. Since your mom is going on vacation to PA and all, why don't you do a month of vacation spots in the US or ecen around the world with Jester Bean! Since it is the beginning of summer, you coukd highlight a different vacation destination and things to do there each day. And you could do those activities and describe them, doing them with BC friends, etc. depending on how elaborate you and your mom want to get! Anyway, an idea!
I was so happy to get your visit! We are getting ready to have a small amazon parrot come stay with us for the summer. His name is Pavarotti. He speaks English, Spanish and Parrot. I am looking forward to teaching him some new words and learn some new ones myself.
It was super hot in April but it has been more normal this month! It is 86F mostly. And we have had high winds every afternoon and evening so it really cools down at night!
Tell your mom to have a fun trip and eat funnel cakes in Amish Country! If she is near Lancaster, they have an amazing farmers market there but my mom doesn't remember the days. For sure Saturdays.
Enjoy Birdie Camp while your mom is gone. I know you will miss her!

  Hi, Jester Bean
All is well here. Molting a tad and mom hopes we aren't mean to each other and beak battle too much. We were terrible last year and mom was coming between us several times as we'd have our wings open and squawking loudly. So far so good.

We look forward to your BOTM run. Would love to hear about your antics and learning new things.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Jester !
It's an especially sweet one since mom has three days off ! Hooray for Monday ! Behind every bright sunny day is a little dark rain cloud though - that little dark rain cloud is called grooming :( Yeppers, my awesome claws will be trimmed this afternoon . . . sigh

Oh and the folks will be heading out to the flea market early tomorrow - but the rest of the weekend should be good - cookout with the g'parronts on Sunday (corn perhaps ?) and parade on Monday . . .

Then the countdown to mom's vacation begins !

Don't forget to try your wing at the Name That Tune songs this week - page 231616 !

Have a great day and you'll be happy to know, I tested your vote button and it works real well :) love Cookie

At Daddy's request, one of the stops was 'Birds Unlimited' - a wonderful huge bird store.
[although Dad did let a beautiful turquoise green-cheek flirt with him, he knows that I'm the Bird, and always comes home to me]

It scared me - so I flew off his hand and across the room - where I pooped in a "wrong" place.

  Flitzer Biography
Happy Sunday, BC Friends.
Since Dad lives in an apartment, he was looking for a "relatively quiet" bird.
Previously he had only cared for a parakeet -who was handicapped.
--
Dad considered a clutch of 4 birds at the local bird store, which is about 45 min away from home.

The first time Dad tried to hold me I bit bit bit, to show him who was boss, but later visits I was calm and kind and loving.

I was the eldest and decided I wanted him. I waited patiently as Dad was attracted to the others, but he was Mine and I let him know that I was "The Bird".
--
I was hatched in August and was supposed to go to Dad's home in November, but Dad had a bad fall when he moved Oct 31st, and that was delayed until mid-December.
Dad had my name chosen early on. Flitzer is German meaning "To Streak or Move Very Fast".
He named me after a Roller Coaster called "The Flitzer", a favorite in his childhood.

Dad has broken up some of the huge Roudybush pellets, but also leaving some of the big ones -he's trying to find out if I'll eat them - so far the answer is "no"....but I'm thinking about it.
