    may seem too small to be a threat you need to keep in mind that raptors are quite powerful for their size here is a video of a sparrowhawk on a jackdaw please note this is a predator prey interaction video and it may be distressing to sensitive viewers though spoiler alert the jackdaw survives Even cousins aren t sacred as ravens are often chased off as vigorously as a raptor because they can certainly be a threat here is a juvenile raven eating a fledgling crow So is it a mystery why crows might act so defensively to any predator threat they see Not really I find anti predator behaviors quite interesting When mobbing occurs note this is also seen in other animal taxa not limited to corvid s or even birds you don t just see kin helping kin you sometimes see entire communities of unrelated individuals banding together to make their neighborhoods safer Sounds a lot like what we do So as I fly Rusty and hunt small game with him I fully expect to get some crow visitors who are none too pleased to have a hawk in their domain in fact we ve already had a few at a local park but in the end can we really blame them Share this Share on Tumblr Like this Like Loading This entry was posted in Uncategorized and tagged american crow behavior blue jay buteo jamaicensis corvid corvid blog corvidae crow falconry goshawk great horned owl hawk hunting jackdaw jay magpie mob mobbing owl predator prey raven red tailed hawk sparrowhawk on February 3 2013 by The Corvid Blog Search for Recent Posts Making Friends With Crows It s That Time of Year Again Roosts Luta Bird Conservation Twitter Of Jackdaws Recent Comments The Corvid Blog on

    avian tongue may change the shape of the mouth as sound is coming out but not in the same ways as we use our very flexible tongue So the point is that the tongue which is fairly rigid in corvids is not used in creating vocalizations the same way humans do therefore altering the tongue has nothing to do with the sounds a bird makes or the ability of a crow raven to mimic human speech If you would like to read more about how birds produce sound please click here Most Corvus learn to speak human words especially when living amongst humans I have personal theories that it relates to group identity but let s just go ahead and move on to the cute videos White necked Raven Corvus albicollis that could seriously use a bill trim Notice that there is a bit of tongue movement likely to alter the shape of the throat as sound goes out White necked Raven Corvus albicollis saying hello and hi with a much nicer bill Julian the Common Northern Raven Corvus corax not only mimicking one person saying What s up but two different voices A crow from the Phillippines either a Slender billed Crow Corvus enca or a Large billed Crow Corvus macrorhynchos It s surprisingly tolerant to being held like that haha It s very cute And I have zero idea what they are saying Pied Crow Corvus albus saying the ever popular Helloooo An American crow Corvus brachyrhynchos saying quite a lot of things He she is quite adorable A New Caledonian Crow Corvus moneduloides the famous tool makers users talking A Rook Corvus frugilegus I think it s saying It looks good Common Northern Raven Corvus corax saying Say nevermore which cracks me up Here are a few non Corvus also mimicking human speech A Eurasian Magpie Pica pica saying his name and mumbling other things Way too cute A Blue Jay Cyanocitta cristata saying her name Please note that is is illegal to have a pet blue jay or any native corvid as a pet in the United States without federal permitting Eurasian Jay Garrulus glandarius talking I think that probably covers a bit of the corvids especially Corvus No tongue splitting needed Share this Share on Tumblr Like this Like Loading This entry was posted in Uncategorized and tagged bird blue jay corvid corvus crow Eurasian Jay jay magpie mimick mimicking raven rook vocalize on October 30 2012 by The Corvid Blog Jungle Crow Eating A Shark by The Corvid Blog Leave a reply I just want to impress upon you that fact that this is a jungle crow Corvus macrorhynchos eating a shark Just take a moment to absorb the awesome Share this Share on Tumblr Like this Like Loading This entry was posted in Uncategorized and tagged bird corvid Corvus macrorhynchos crow jungle crow shark on October 25 2012 by The Corvid Blog Fall Crow by The Corvid Blog Leave a reply A photo
