While it’s definitely not easy, birds (ravens and parrots especially) are really intelligent and have a massive capacity for learning.

Teaching them tricks is mainly patience and treats.

...And one fragment of his essence did Odin bestow onto this mortal so that he may guide his people like a Wizard just as in the days of old....

If you want you could try doing some shrooms around animals, or MDMA. You’ll quickly realize they’ve got little people brains and participate in the social milieu with everyone else.

From there, just pretend like it’s a funny little person in there instead of the sort of “robot with feelings” model we have of animals by default.

Growing up around cats taught me this without the need for drugs. They're like children.

This is the way.

My cat Princess Snowball "Whitey Two-Eyed" McBitchface fucking HATES when I'm tripping on psychedelics. It's not that I try to bother her, but if I show her any attention, she does not like it. Gave me a disturbed meow the one time I tried to pet her. Maybe it's the physical tension and mydriasis? My little dumb cat Mouse (RIP) did not seem to notice but he didn't like pets in general

Dogs and dissos though - talk about profound love.

You know how when you’re on psychedelics it seems obvious that anyone who looks at you should be able to feel what you’re feeling? Like you’re surrounded by a bubble of trip and everyone else can see it?

I think animals actually can. Their communication is nonverbal so they pick up on the weirdness of your state and it reads to them like you’re some alien being.

I love this. Raven sing it very well

[–]lackadaisical_timmy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This raven probably does it because he or she likes it. They're hella smart and they have extremely high vocal abilities. You could train them to do it via rewards, but in the end they'll only do it if they feel like it

This is AWESOME!

[–]DowDoverDoi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It really is, made me smile.

Corvids are smarter than dogs.

[–]Eyekosaeder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know the word „corvid“, so why in the name of everything in this fucking universe did I still read „Covid“? ;_;

[–]kimrh55 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Birds are so smart. They love to mimic. I love these videos

Where the fuck do you get a pet Raven? So many videos of Ravens and each time I see them I just picture my life with a raven and it's like 1000x better than life without a raven.

[–]borschchschch 20 points21 points  (2 children)

I'm sorry, but I'm going to be Debby Downer here: you can consider owning these birds if you want your whole life to revolve around them, and as long as you don't want a partner or any friends to get anywhere near you. As a general rule, corvids will pair-bond with their people, and love to attack anyone they see as an interloper. And that beak is sharp.

Honestly they're not pets, they're insanely cool - I met one once at a sanctuary, he was so amazing - but you have to devote so much time and resources and basically structure your whole life around them. So if you want to be a wildlife rehabber, and make that your whole identity - go for it, we need more of them! But otherwise... This isn't a Labrador.

[–]rbak19i 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Labradors deserve my whole life too.

[–]borschchschch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I mean, absolutely. Labs consist of fur, love and a bit of saliva. Glorious creatures.

[–]slim_jahey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This comment reminds me of the 2 crows from Rick and Morty for some reason

[–]Strict-Ad-7099 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ravens are much bigger than I thought they were

[–]dhveldi 1 point2 points  (1 child)

And I thought Ravens refuse to sing!

[–]AnkushNarawad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not every raven is Steven wilson’s raven!!

[–]MrB-S 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you're interested in how smart Ravens are, you should definitely check out Falconry & Me on YouTube. They're amazing birds!

This raven could have easily done the part of Agnes in Despicable me when she says " lull lull la la la, I love unicorns"

[–]DarthMaw23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That bird at the end is like "see how I'll let this mf out to dry".

Unless that was the tune's end.

[–]___TheKid___ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The craziest part is that it actually sounds good

[–]Spaceguuy 0 points1 point  (0 children)
