On a board 7x7 Flamingo would be bound to the perimeter. Gilman's Namel (1,7) jumper is so bound on regular 8x8 board. Can they both manoeuvre to get to the other orthogonal perimeter rows on respective boards? Yes. I switch notation and also use Flamingo's going directly to opposite corner of (2,7) set of squares. On 8x8 Gilman's Ibis (1,8) leaper cannot move even from the perimeter.
