A sweary parrot that was stuck on a roof for three days tells her rescuers to eff off!

How's that for gratitude!

When English fire fighters rushed to the rescue of a parrot that had been stuck on a roof for three days they weren't expecting to be told to "f&#* off".

But that's exactly what an unimpressed Jessie the Macaw told them when they made it to her roof-top perch - before flying on to the neighbour's place.

Jessie had escaped her Edmonton, north London home but when she was still perched on the same roof after three days her owner worried that she was injured and couldn't get down, so called the fire brigade.

After ascending the ladder, on advice from her owner, they told her they loved her and she adorably replied "I love you back" - only to then ruffle feathers by telling them to "f* off".

Watch Manager Chris Swallow told the Daily Mail, "We were told that to bond with the parrot, you have to tell her 'I love you', which is exactly what the crew manager did. While Jessie responded 'I love you' back, we then discovered that she had a bit of a foul mouth and kept swearing, much to our amusement."

Jessie apparently speaks Turkish and Greek as well so lord knows what expletives she uses in those languages.

As it was apparent the foul-mouthed fowl was ininjured, her rescurers took down their ladder and went on their merry way. Not without a bit of a chortle though.
