Mearl is an imprinted crow raised illegally from a hatchling. He is incredibly smart and we need to keep him sufficiently entertained with enrichment that ranges from a variety of food and intriguing toys. Mearl is a complete sweetheart, often mimicking the sound of a human interpretation of a crow caw, and occasionally trying to speak to us by saying, "oh it's you!", or something similar sounding. He also enjoys being scratched, it is very similar to the way crows groom one another in the wild.
