Ana Cruz, a teacher with more than 30 years of experience, taught a mockingbird Cuba’s National Anthem.
Cruz has only had the bird for a year, from the day her grandson rescued it from dying at the hands of some naughty kids but in such a short time she has managed to teach it several tunes.
The repertoire includes the first stanza of Cuba’s National Anthem, the February 24 Anthem which is its favourite, according to Cruz and popular Cuban songs such as El golpe de bibijagua and El Manisero.
At the moment, it’s learning to sing a Happy Birthday song.
“It was me who taught him to sing,” says Cruz proudly, “My method is very simple. I just stand in front of its cage and whistle the tune a thousand times. You have to be very patient; it may take weeks.”
