Hallo all,
When I first came to Norway many years ago there was a man who worked at the
university in Bergen. He had a tame Common Raven called Kromp that he had
taught to talk. If I remember correctly the Raven could say several words
and one or two short sentences. What was even more remarkable was that it
had also picked up the Bergen dialect. The Raven also made a few TV
appearances and became quite a celebrity.
