Wild hooded crow talking


Playout date: 1 April 2007
Duration: 1:32

This hasn’t happened to me since, in my interactions with the crows of Warsaw. I’ve been divebombed by them, had food stolen by them, and been defecated on by them , but this is the first and last time I got a human impersonation out of one of them. Thankfully I had a camera to hand.

The bird is wild, in a park. Some people ventured in the comments that it must have been around people a lot, but of course that is not necessary. Being around people doesn’t give a bird a different set of vocal chords or mental functions. If a domesticated parrot or corvid will talk, then so will a wild one, if it feels like it. They don’t need years of practice.

The fact that this was uploaded on April 1 might have led people to think it was an April Fool’s Day joke, but I don’t do them and don’t normally enjoy the “humour” of pranks that people come up with in a forced way on that day.

Quote of the clip: “Hello!”
