Walk of Fame Move Over Parrots: This Raven Can Talk Too Published 2 years ago on Jul 22, 2017 By Lyn Kelly Mischief, a white-necked raven, has been making the rounds on YouTube for simply being his clever little self, aside from the fact of course that he can also mimic sounds just as parrots can. Talons and Teeth In the viral video, which has close to 4.5 million views on YouTube, Mischief’s trainer Paige Davis can be seen with her infectious smile as she cheerfully and patiently attempts to interact and communicate with the sometimes stubborn raven. Davis, who has taught Mischief simple words like “Hi” and “Hello,” is a curator of bird training at the World Bird Sanctuary, a non-profit organization whose mission is to “preserve, protect and inspire to safeguard bird species as part of the global community for future generations.” Talons and Teeth Belonging to the impressively intelligent Corvidae family, which is comparable to equally intelligent dolphins and chimpanzees, the Raven has been shown to be capable of devising tricks and using tools in order to get food. For instance, they can mimic fox and wolf calls, leading these fanged predators toward a carcass that their beaks alone cannot open. Not only that, on the occasion that they do catch small tortoises by flying way up high with the shelled animal and consequently dropping it to the ground, cracking the shell and exposing the tender meat inside. Davis shared: “Ravens are excellent at mimicking sounds they hear.” Furthermore, the raven has more than 20 distinct call patterns according to research records, duly earning it a slot among the most intelligent bird species. This incredible bird can also mimic noises like human coughing and even the roaring of car engines. Python Paige White-necked ravens like Mischief can be found across the southern and eastern regions of Africa. These herbivores feed mainly on small reptiles, insects and fruits. They are also quite social, playful and mischievous by nature. They have been caught on camera making slides out of snow-covered roofs in Canada and Alaska. They’ve even been observed rolling down snow-covered hills in Maine. UP NEXT Poisoned Cat Saved Thanks to Vodka...
