Earlier this week, local woman Ragnheiður Axel started her day with something a lot blacker than any cup of coffee she could have made. Last she saw, the raven was walking on over to her neighbor’s lot. It was a raven. He was so friendly; only wanted to pick at my shoes and talk,” she says. “Apparently, he often knocks on people’s and company’s doors and wants to play,” she says. Ragnheiður loves animals and is used to playing with dogs but she had no idea how to entertain a raven. He comes by quite often, they said, and prefers to hang out by their window. “I have never met a raven and held a bird that way, but then he flew up and sat on my head.”
The event can be seen in the video below which Ragnheiður posted on her Facebook page. “I went outside and greeted him and it was so strange. “But I hope he visits again some time.” “He is obviously used to being around people, when I talked to him and asked him what he was doing there he just answered.”
Ragnheiður also says he is a bit of a prankster – playing with men and dogs and knocking on windows repeatedly until somebody comes out to talk with him. She had just gotten to work in Hafnarfjörður when there was a knock on the door. In it, she can be heard exclaiming in Icelandic: “I am starting of the day with a raven on my f****g head!”
She discussed this unusual guest with neighbors who had also been visited by the same bird the day before.
