“Y'alright love?” - Meet The Crow With The Yorkshire Accent


Share this article


A crow has been filmed in England, greeting visitors to an historic market town - in a Yorkshire accent.

The bird can be heard saying “Y’alright love?” to passers-by in the small town of Knaresborough.

The bizarre exchange was recorded by Lisa and Mark Brooks, on a recent trip to the town's castle.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds told BBC News that the bird in the video is a species normally found in Africa.

The charity said it believes the crow is probably an escaped pet, which would explain it's accent.

Other breeds of bird, like parrots, are known for mimicking voices, but not normally crows.
