And Mischief is this White-Necked Raven’s name. I once had a Magpie friend I named Mr. Maggles. He was a rescue, like the other four bird friends I had growing up. I love birds.
– Like all members of the Corvidae family, ravens are extremely intelligent. They use tools to get food if necessary, and can even mimic human speech!
– Since they are very social by nature, ravens are also some of the most playful of birds.
– Ravens display a strange behavior in the wild called “anting”. They roll around on anthills, let the ants crawl all over them, and then they chew up the ants and rub them through their feathers. Scientists are unsure why they do this.
