Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

HAHA! Rickeybird and Jury, my Jenday, would get along great! Jury also can't whistle except for using his voice

BTW, I am so glad you found us too!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

If you need any glass-breaking shrieks, ask Charlotte and Leo to join the choir. I swear I'm just waiting for the day when one of their high pitched squeals actually breaks my windows.

(Funny aside...I accidentally typed widow instead of window, which would still be relevant as MrC is a widower. Dark humor. Sorry.)

The Rickeybird Scrapbook Update
8/7/2016

My own art is quite contemporary, but I have always admired the amazing bird illustrations done by the English artist and author Edward Lear.(1812-88). He is most famous for his prints of parrots and toucans. I have one of his original signed toucans on my mantle. He also loved nonsense poems and humor... he wrote "The Owl and the *****cat", for instance. [Woopsie... kitty got censored!]

Here are a couple of examples. I've had them for years, but they're going into the official Scrapbook today! Of course, both are Rickeybirds!



Reproduction of a print from the most rare and valuable series of Lear parrots, "Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae", 1830-2. This one is post-card size; the original folios are about 23 x 25 inches.
Note that a Rickeybird was called Patagonian Parakeet-macaw (Psittacara patagonica). Today, they are Patagonian Conures (Cyanolesius patagonus). They're called Loros Barranqueros (Burrowing Parrots) in their native land.


This print is authentic, and mine. It's a small octavo print, about 4 x 7 inches. It's a hand-colored steel engraving from the 1836 volume of parrots in "The Naturalist's Library". By this time, a Rickeyburd was called a Patagonian Arara (Arara patagonica).

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Gail what a wonderful collection, and all of your baby's family too.
That's way cool. When I was a kid, one treat was to go to my grandpa's house and look at his old Currier and Ives prints, so I love everything that classic style of prints. Say hi to Ricky from Seltzer.
