Question:
Can Raven (birds) TALK?


Replies:
Ravens, and their close relatives, crows, are very expressive vocalists, with an amazing variety of calls, but do not mimic human speech.

I have known people to keep them as pets and have been told they can utter what are heard by we humans as words... Eg. nevermore.
