I'll let my owner tell you:
I found him wandering around my street. He was obviously tame, couldn't fly very well & spent a week hanging around in peoples yards talking. Various people tried to catch him because we were all concerned but he would bite or fly (or run)away from anyone who got too close. One day my brother-in-law was trying to catch him and I sat on the grass to watch. Jack walked up to me and practically crawled in my lap! I couldn't find his owner, noone else wanted him and he seemed to like me so I kept him.

Hi! My name is Jack

I am a Bare-Eyed Cockatoo from Sydney, Australia, Intl.

15 years old   M

Bare-Eyed Cockatoo

*Seeding grasses
*Bagels or toast
*Celery tops

*food bowl
*Sleeping perch
*Bottom of cage
*Outside on the grass

*Having my cage packed with branches

She's not scared of me! She feeds me, gives me far too many toys, gives me showers, treats, cuddles, and whistles & sings to me.

Unfortunately I came pre-loaded with a fair few swearwords! I also imitate a phone ringing, and occasionally 'pick it up' (make a click noise) and start talking to 'the person on the other end'. I say "Hello Jack", "How are you going" "whatcha doing" "give me a kiss" - and make kissing noises. And lots of other stuff. If I hear a police siren (not any other kind) I say "bloody coppers".

I don't do anything on command consistently, except the phone ring - if you show me a phone (or similar - like a camera).

When I am given treats I will throw the first piece away - every time, no matter what it is.

I will try to bite EVERYONE I can gain access to except my owner..

  Hello Jack
You sound like my bird Barry. He will try to bite everyone but me. He does bite me but not with the tenacity he shows others. Hes a good boy though. I really liked how you two met. I am sure you have a great home down under.

Come visit me, Pearl, Scout the Cape Parrot, Barry, Snow White and the Seven Tiels & Roxy.
