Video captures wild crow saying "hello" to Kamloops man

"Hello" from a crow

It seems the local bird population might have something to say to Kamloopsians.

In a video posted on YouTube, a wild crow can be heard making a sound very different from the usual 'caw, caw.'

At first, you can hear it making a sound similar to 'hello.' The man shooting the video then responds by saying hello, himself.

The crow seems to get better after it, and after the man says "Do it again, hello, hello" the crow looks at him and calls out "hello, hello," back, deeper this time.

Crows and related birds like magpie and ravens are known to be able to imitate human language, though usually, they're in captivity.
