These are short answers to some of the more common questions I get asked. Please feel free to suggest additional questions in the comments section. W hile crows and ravens are in the same family, corvidae, and look quite similar, they are as different from one another as lions and tigers.

Is it true that if you split a crows tongue it can talk? When I was a kid I had a pet crow named Clifford. One day, when Clifford was about two years old, my dad grabbed the crow and held him down while I split his tongue with a razor blade. Clifford started talking immediately. First, he cussed us up one side and down the other; then he called the Humane Society and turned us in for cruelty to animals. Well since no one has ever even caught a Bigfoot, I doubt anyone will be splitting their tongues…. James, i will say this, you are brave for starting this topic in the forum, but even jokingly admitting to mutilating a crows tongue will cost you and ye shall be cast out to Winterfell and beheaded like Ned Stark.
Clifford started talking immediately. Rosie Humphreys' ewe had its eyes pecked out by a crow in Monmouthshire Kate Brown was just 32 years old, recently married and beginning a new job, when she learned that a spot on her tongue was stage III tongue cancer. A thermal burn of the mouth or tongue can cause pain, blisters, peeling skin, and temporary loss of taste. However, cutting their tongue will only injure the bird, it will not them learn words any easier or No; you don't need to split a crow's tongue to enable it to speak. I address this in every talk I give on crows.

Saturday, November 1, Talking Birds: Fact vs. There are a number of tales involving talking animals, but these tales require our suspension of belief. Or do they? Buddy, a Double Yellow-headed Amazon Parrot. Some birds do have the ability to learn to mimic certain words of the human language. In fact, some birds, if worked with regularly, have even been known to learn word associations and string together sentences.
