Here's Tikka, my interpreter-bird. She sits on my shoulder, and tells me what she hears. Her hearing is exquisite. Her vocabulary consists of about 7 words and 15 other sounds, including the hawk-alert sound and the "pay attention to me" incessant, increasingly-urgent click. But she makes the most of what she has to work with, and if all else fails, she bites my earlobe. At which point I turn to look at her, and she says, "What?"
