This is just incredible! From the description:
Quote:
A wild raven perched himself on our fence and squawked for over an hour. I went to see what was up with him and saw that he had four porcupine quills stuck in him, three in the side of his face and one in his wing. This video shows my Mom taking out the ones in his face. Very bizarre he let us get that close and even more bizare he let my Mom pull the quills out. He hung around for the day and was gone the next. Best of luck Wilfred (yeah, I named him) lol

It really shows just how smart ravens are, he knew humans have hands that could help and had observed these people enough to know they probably weren't going to hurt him.

It's cute how he tries to stay still but still squawks at her because it hurts and he's scared, just like a little kid when you need to pull off a band-aid.
