Friendly Talking Raven Calls People “My Darling” In Perfect German

This chatterbox raven can’t help but compliment anyone who comes by. Listen as he says “my darling” and “wait, wait, wait,” speaking both phrases in German.

Ravens have an uncanny ability to mimic human speech. Normally we associate this skill with parrots or cockatiels, but ravens can also pick up words and phrases from their owners.

In this case, Ramires is a raven that lives in Germany. Because of this, his phrases are all spoken in Germany. Nature photographer Lothar Lenz was able to capture Ramires’ amazing talent on camera and shared it with the world in 2015.
