Sometimes nature is weird. Like, really weird. Ravens and crows are known to be some of the most intelligent bird species, but sometimes it’s downright creepy. They have demonstrated tool use, they can mimic noises and repeat a few words, and have learned that we’re smart and can help them.

Some crows ask for food or water, but this poor bird crossed paths with the wrong end of an animal. What might have just been an attempt at play with a porcupine, resulted in a face full of quills. Unable to remove them himself, the raven perched himself on a farmer’s ranch and squawked for over an hour until someone came to help. Nature really is amazing.
