Crows, ravens and magpies are such intelligent birds. If you have it for a while you may be able to teach it to talk. I once had a magpie that had been shot in the wing. Many people said hewould not talk if his tongue was not split--he did just fine with his tongue the way God made it. I only had it for about 6 weeks before it started saying "Hi" and "Bob" quite clearly. I was very sorry to see him leave. I can only imaging how surprised people were when this magpie hollered "hi" to them. He came back every spring for three years and then he stopped coming home. I choose to believe that he found a nicer spot than my yard to reside in.
Good luck with the bird!
