Yes. My dad had a crow that could say "Bob crows hot."

I don't know about talking - ours never learned it. But they are pretty good mimics. Our crow and blue jay would mimic each other. The blue jay would sound like a crow way across the yard up in a tree, and our crow would sound like a 40 lb blue jay.

Crows are scavengers, rancid helps them find it.
