raven Copy Crow

My school does a live TV news show each week. Once in a while we interview from locations highlighting local places. We recently went to a place called Kuipers Family Farms. They have a crow there and I was amazed...

Check out this video (it's short) of their crow copying my son. I find it hilarious!

I fixed the link- it should work now- can you tell if the laughing is the crow or my son?

The sound of that crow laughing and saying hello is a hoot!

Your son sounds like he's having a great time!

I had no idea crows could be trained to formulate sounds like that. Amazing!

Thanks for posting an entertaining video clip gnomenative!

That's wonderful! Be sure to save it somewhere permanently in case the link goes away.

Amazing. Funny too.
I've heard that Native Americans kept them a pets and trained them to talk. Doesn't seem like they need much training to do it. LOL
