>>2031855 i live in switzerland. i know a place very near where a lot of ravens live. i have an apartment, but i wouldn't want to lock him in or something. i live near enought that place that he would find home easily. i just want to find one that comes to me freely when he feels like it...
>>2031856 it's illegal to seel them here. and i don't want to get a falconers licence. shit's expensive. my dad had a raven when he was young. it was a young one that fell out of his nest. he took him home and took care of him. i was waiting for something like that to happen to me all my life. but it never did. so now i would like to actively do something to make my dream come true.
i also don't think about having a raven in a shoebox-apartment like that with 1000 cats. and lock him into aviatory. i have a big blcony facing the woods. i was thinking about making a space for one to go to f he feels like it. i just want to have one in my company. observing him. nothing over the top
I've been thinking about this too. Lets say I have farmland. Lets say there's a eaven family that nests near my property. If I were to get an egg and have a raven imprint on me, giving it free access to the outside world and my home, would that be a situation that goes well?
Literally happens all the times in Aus with Magpies.People feed them and they start visiting the home every day for food.
We got a rescue call from 2 separate people who said their was an injured magpie, turns out they lived in the same suburb and this fucker would go to one house in the morning for food and then visit the next one in the afternoon.
>>2031854 Appreciate the social relationship you can have with a murder of wild crows. Leave a couple scraps of edibles around for them once in a blue moon and they'll keep other scavengers off your land. Eventually they might be more comfortable being closer to you, but don't bet on it. You don't need to enslave an animal that has neither the breeding nor instincts of a companion animal just so you can enjoy the animal itself.
Having a license and sheltering a wounded animal is different from just snagging up a pet. You're likely not prepared for that responsibility given your post.
I used to wonder about this too, OP, but I imagine trying to tame an animal as smart as a raven would be very tricky and might not result in the expected outcome. I used to see a raven every day at my college campus, but my attempts to befriend it over a five month period only got him to swoop over my head a couple times when I had my back turned.
>>2031854 The biggest problem is with corvids, or at least crows and ravens is that their behavior is not as instinctual as say, a kanari. Most of how they behave is learned from their parents and members of the flock and a human can't possibly give those lessons.
I live in a great country. We shot all the crows and bears and wolves till extinction. Then we felt bad because we couldn't shoot them anymore so we tried to bring them back. As soon we release them into wild crazy old women shoot at them when we said not to. Crazy old man continues to shoot and kill them. Visible erection too when shooting them.
Now, seriously. Happens in Spain. Horrible people, the elderly. I think what's more sickening is when we explain to them that the wolves don't attack sheep and the stray dogs to and they go, yeah I know. Then why do you shoot endangered animals? Because I like it and because I can do whatever I fucking want. Hits on the wife and goes drinking. These persons, do not deserve pity.
>>2036106 >Why is keeping primates illegal in most of the world?
Cause they be dangerous as fuck. Between being shot in the head and thrown in a cage with a pack of angry chimps. Shoot me, Shoot me straight in the head, blow my brains out but do not, do not put me in there. Fuck, even Detroit is safer....no wait.
I read that crows and ravens can recognize human faces and voices. At my college we have crows that hang around campus, they only arrive relatively early in the day and late in the afternoon. I've only had one relatively close encounter with one before. >be walking to the parking lot after long day of class >up ahead a crow is picking at something >as I continue walking closer I start to say "hi!", "hello!" What'chya doing there?" In a friendly tone >crow nopes up into a near by tree and watches me from above. >I walk up closer to the base of the tree and continue to talk to it. It cocks it's head drone side to side as I speak. Probably wondering why I'm showing interest in it, I'm not sure if any other students pay the crows any attention.
A couple months later on a foggy morning. >park my car and start making my way towards the building >I notice a crow perched on top of a lamp in the parking lot, eating away at something >as I continue walking slowly, look around, parking lot only has a few other cars but not occupied with anyone. >so I tilt my head up and say good morning >didn't seem to hear me at first and continued eating. I certainly didn't believe this was the same crow I saw last time but I just wanted to talk to it anyways. >so then I said "hello!" "Hi!" "What'chya doing?" >he stops eating >looks down at me as I say my last couple hellos >I continue walking and I hear it cawing behind me. Then I hear more than one call >I reach a sidewalk near a large tree with curly, thick branches. >I hear a cawing sounding louder so I turn around and another crow is flying towards me and lands on a tree branch above my head >I stand in one place and call out the "hello" "hi" "what'ya doing?" Once more and the crow caws after each phrase.
>I smile and say goodbye and told them I had to go to class >I start walking towards the school and it keeps cawing as if it's calling after me. >when I finally reach the school the two crows fly over my head and continue cawing >I realize I want alone in the parking lot, when I was talking to the crow cars were filling in as time went by. I haven't been there too long but long enough for other students and professors to arrive. >as I said good eye there was a woman in a bright red collard dress that ended at the knees. She looked to the sky and smiled to where the crows were and then looked at me as I held the door for her. I wonder if she caught me talking to them...
One time I was walking to class, two synchronized globs of bird shit fall less than a foot in front of me. The moment I look up, the two crows above me fly away, were they possibly doing that on purpose, or am I assuming too much? lol
>>2036494 Doesn't sound intentional but I have heard this story of a guy who pissed off some crows by throwing rocks at them, almost everyday as he walked up to his work building the crows would intentionally drop pebbles and acorns on him. And the occasional shit as well.
As long as you didn't do anything to them, I'm convinced it was unintentional. Besides, typically before birds go into flight they will drop a shit to make air travel lighter for them.
