None. My wife has one too many. Kidding!
Once again, the Rickeybird misses the point...

Happy Self-Improvement Day, EVERYBODY!

Welllllllll, geez, after all his sentimental stuff, it's nice to see the Bird getting back to his true sentiments.
Self-improvement indeed.
How about THE BIRD does some self-improvement, like shutting his beak, keeping his poop to himself, and leaving the rest of us out of his fantasies?
How about THAT?


Meanwhile, a day worthy of mention.
I wish all of us a peaceful and reflective day, sincerely.

Well, I need to put together an entry for this month's PhotoOfTheMonth Contest!

I think this may be it. I know that the topic is supposed to involve "chop" (fresh produce/munchables) but the Rb's dream chop would be chile peppers. He has loved 'em since he was a few months old, and I have made sure he had at least one a day, every day, for 37 years. My ol' man and I figured it up once and discovered that by now, we could have bought an economy car with that chile-money!
Anyway, here it is. My husband buys a basket of chiles every now and then to roast and freeze. I interrupted his process to do a photo-shoot for this month's contest.

This picture is perfect! Well, except he needs his hen to pick up all the extras and handfeed them to him. Come on Sister, you better hurry before he gets upset:)

The Rickeybird, 37-year-old Patagonian Conure
In these days of the Rickeybird's "Golden Years", I love looking back to earlier days.
Here's a post from September 25, 2016. He was ONLY 32 years old here...!
Oh, well, something went wrong with that last video. Maybe it's stashed with the lost Dead Sea Scrolls...

"The Links"


Thank you one and all, for looking... you are saving many innocent disinterested bystanders among family and friends who will not be harassed into watching yet another batch of Rickeybird antics. It's just that I think everything he does is so delightful! Y'all get me! Please note the attractive garbage bag hanging on the door.

I can't decide whether or not to call this a trick or an invention of a percussion instrument.
Let's go with percussion.

PRESENTING... The Rickeybird playing instruments which he recently invented: Percussion Links.
He plays one...
Then two...
Then three at once...

Bravo!
