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.

17 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 Bean!
First, of all, congratulations on BOTD! We had just left you a message and then saw this message in our email. It seems we get notices about messages a day after they are posted in BC. Not sure why.

Anyway, it's so nice to hear from you! Mom hasn't been good about keeping up on BC. She is on FB a lot and just can't do both sometimes. She is out of work still so is on the computer a lot! I love to sit on her knee while she works. I'm her assistant.

Mom has has some health issues too. She had surgery and I was so terrified of the bandage and then the scar! I wouldn't sit with her for 2 days! Then mom had to cover up the huge bandage (on her neck -- hard to do!) Finally, I sat with her. Now I try to pick on the scar! Mom says I'm silly!

How have you been? I love your profile picture and seeing your crown! It's beautiful!

I bet that must be so cool to hear your mom playing the piano. My mom always wanted to learn that -- even as a child. I would love to hear the songs so I bet you're enjoying that too!

Other than that, we are waiting for spring! It's freezing here! Mom says it's time to move south to a warmer climate. She says we'd love it because we could have the windows open more often during the year. We are all for that!

Okay, hope you are enjoying some warmer weather down in FL. Congratulations again! Thanks for checking in. Hope your mom is doing well. Squawk with you again soon! Oh, I love your shower pictures! I try to take a bath in my water bowl! :-)

Love and wing hugs,

Come visit me, Kahlua & Tango.

  Congrats for BOTD Mr Jester-from Angel Christy
It is so cold here with the wind chill factors in place, all of our weather casters were saying don't go out today if you don't have to! It is 20 below zero, and will stay this way for at least another day, frost bite on exposed skin can set in very quickly! We definitely will be on the inside looking out, dad went to to have a word with Christy and feed our outside cousins, although there is not many flying around looking for food! Other than the cold outside, we are all doing quite well, have a great hump day dear friends! Give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi, King Jester
Congratulations on BOTD. Here's a vote in celebration. So awesome to see you in the spotlight today. Have a great day at the Castle with King Amando.

Do you let your mom groom your pin feathers? It would make you feel better to have it done. We have each other to get those we can't reach and very rarely we let mom do a bit. Skinsis could always get it done but she got married and moved.

We aren't big on toys but with any fid that goes thru a lot of 'em we imagine the homemade ones are best. More economical and parronts know what type of toys their fids prefer. Nothing makes 'em happier than seeing a nice pile of shredded wood or paper (rather than any beak marks on the furniture.)

Love, love, love piano music. Too bad no one here plays. When we visit gma there's one there and she plays it every night.

Wing hugs, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

That is neat your mom plays the piano for you! The one grand plays the clarinet and has for many years and also plays the saxaphone too though she just started that. The other grand plays the flute and has many years and enjoys it too. Yesterday the one grand didn’t have school because of Presidents day so skin sis and the grand came up to visit a bit. The grand was at the dentist to get a small cavity fixed and came up after that then. With school and softball mom hasn’t seen the grand for a good while and boy did she get tall! She is taller then mom now but they all are now except the youngest one and bet it wont be long he will tower over mom too. Mom used to think she was tall but now she is feeling other wise LOL. “Dear old man winter we have had enough!“ leaving you a vote ~~Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Jester Bean,

How are you? Again, I hope all is well. It's your Friend, Oz and I haven't heard from you in a long time. I'm doing very well. My Mommy went to Parrot Palooza at Bird Paradise in NJ and got to meet so many BC Friends. She hung out with 6 of them staying at a Hotel not far from us. They had so much fun and can't wait to do it again next year. Hope you, your Mom & Flock are all well. Here's a vote for you, cutie. Bye for now.

  Hi Jester Bean,

How are you? It's been so long since we spoke. It's your Friend, Oz. Sad news and happy news. My Friend, Snowy passed away yesterday from a heart attack is the very bad news and I was shocked and so upset as I'm sure his Mom and Flock were. The happy news is that I was Maid of Honor in my Sister, Cheyenne (Jedi) and Brother, Apache's (Snowflake) Double Wedding Ceremony this past Saturday, Sept. 20th. I was never even at a Wedding before let alone be in one LOL. But it was a lot of fun. Hope you, your Flock and Mom are doing well. Here's a vote for you, cutie. Bye for now.

  Hi Jester sweetie!
I want to thank everybirdy for their prayers! Mila's family is truly grateful! We all know the power of prayer is a powerful thing...but we are all in shock over little Mila's progress. She had brain surgery 7:30am on Friday. When the surgeons went in, they discovered that some of what was tumor, was actually scar tissue from her surgery lastyyear, & sort of made a pocket that the larger tumor was sitting in. They were able to ENTIRELY remove BOTH tumors! On Saturday, she was moved to a regular room & they had her up walking! On Sunday, less than 48hrs upon completion of her surgery, MILA WAS SENT HOME...TRULY A MIRACLE!!!
Mila's family would still appreciate ur prayers. Since this cancer came back so quickly & aggressively, doctors are going to treat it very aggressively with chemo & radiation. Mila is doing wonderfullly! She has to take it easy, but she's up & playing with all of her princess toys! She'll walk up to u, give u a hug & tell u that she has a boo-boo & that herhhead hurts. It's truly amazing & miraculous! All things are possible with God!
Love from
TiaMaria & Mom Sandy

  Hi everybirdy!
Tia here, sorry I haven't been around in quite awhile, sooooo much has been going on, I'll let u know all about it. Mom FINALLY unpacked the box that contained her notebook that has everybirdy's page #s! Today, mom & I ask for ur prayers.

A good friend of mom's has an adorable 4 yr old daughter, Mila. The past 14 months have been a horrific nightmare for Dawn, Mila's mother. Mila was born with Li Fraumeni Syndrome, which is an EXTREMELY RARE genetic condition. Certain receptors shut off & leaves that person very prone to cancer. Last summer, Mila began acting strangely...bobbing her head around, running into things, suddenly falling down & grabbing her head & screaming. Her pediatrician immediately ordered a brain MRI. Dawnh& Neil were devastated to learn that their precious 3 yr old daughter had Choroid Plexus Carcinoma, an EXTREMELY RARE & very aggressive brain cancer. Mila had brain surgery 3 days later. It was touch & go for the 1st week, they had to restart her heart 4 times. Miraculously, she made it thru, although she spent 3 months in intensive care. She was released fromthe hospital 2 days before Christmas...a true Christmas miracle...Mila had ABSOLUTELY NO mental deficit! Since then, she must have an MRI every 3 months. All of them had been perfectly spotless - until her MRI last week.

Mila now has 2 aggressive tumors - the larger one, the size of a small navel orange, & the other is a bit larger than a golfball. The larger one is in the same spot as the one removed last year, but it is tangled in her nerves & has been deemed inoperable. She will once again have to endure chemotherapy & this time start radiation. The smaller tumor will be removed. I just spoke to her mom Dawn, they will be leaving for Children's Hosp in Pittsburgh in a couple hrs. Mila will be having brain surgery tomorrow morning at 7:30am. to remove the smaller tumor & hopefully be able to remove part at least part of the larger one. We are all heartbroken that this precious little girl hasto go thru tthis again. I hope all our dear friends will say a special prayer for Mila, that God in Heaven will once again restore her health! Thank you my dear friends & God Bless u all.
TiaMaria & mom Sandy
