Have you ever heard of a crow rooster? It’s a bird that looks strikingly similar to a black crow but sounds just like a cock-a-doodle-dooey rooster.
The first crow rooster in history was recently spotted sitting on top of a van in Russia. There’s not much of an explanation for the strange animal but Crow Facts, a website dedicated to nothing but crow facts, writes that the black crow is known to mimic the noises of other animals.
Crow Facts writes:
“Crows have a varied and evolved language. They can mimic the sounds made by other animals, and they learn to associate noises with events, especially with the distribution of food.”
Critter Control writes that crows, like parrots, have even been known to mimic the human voice.
It’s unclear where the video was taken but it was probably somewhere near a farm.
The crow may be able to mimic the sound of a rooster but the bird really has to work on its timing. It appears that the crow has absolutely zero regard for the time of day and is making his rooster call anytime it wants.
Here’s the video of the crow crowing like a rooster.
