This poor crow needed help getting some porcupine quills out of his skin. Although he doesn’t seem to enjoy it very much, it looks like he appreciates the help from some nice humans!
Both crows and ravens have the ability to recreate sounds. Crows imitate one another to warn of danger, get another crow’s attention and communicate with each other in many ways.
When I first heard Julian, the raven, talking in the video below, I almost didn’t believe it! After watching several other videos I was amazed to discover that ravens really will mimic a human voice and can even switch between a man and a woman’s voice!
Flying over head were 2 ravens making crow calls. I also heard a blue jay makig hawk noises. Interesting..
