“Our crew manager was the willing volunteer who went to an advaced status to bring Jessie lower. I was told that to bond using the parrot, you need to let her know ‘I love you’, which is what the crew manager did.
“While Jessie responded ‘I love you’ back, then we learned that she’d a foul mouth and stored swearing, much to the amusement.”
Jessie is reported to possess told the firefighters to “f*** off” before flying off and away to another rooftop.
