I have no idea if the Rickeybird knows what he is or not. There is a huge hall mirror past which we walk a lot. He used to just get very quiet. He used to stare at it but nowadays doesn't seem to notice. One funny thing, though... he never learned to say HELLO RICKEY, although he hears it a lot. HELLO GAIL, yes and just a general HELLO. He'll call "at" me, GAIL, as he did in the video. He seems to have learned almost all of his words from my husband, not me. I've been trying to teach him to say I LOVE YOU for 30 years... nope, nothing!

When I first moved up North, and people were getting to know the bird, they got into the habit of not sounding Ss in "solidarity" with the Rickeybird. So we all ran around saying 'Aturday and 'Unday, 'EE you later, do you want a 'Andwich? My brother's girlfriend became 'Amantha.
