As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Amazing! This Isn't Your Average Talking Bird! Wait Until You Hear This Raven Speak!
Mischief the African raven has been taught how to say two very distinct words in two very distinct ways! I had no idea these birds could be taught how to speak, let alone repeat words so amazingly! This raven is just like a parrot!
Ravens are known for their intelligence and playfulness, and even though they get a bad rap on TV, they’re actually really friendly birds. And as you can see from this video, they can learn things quite fast, and are excellent mimics!
