Anyone missing a talking crow? If so, Auburn police have it. Sunday afternoon Dennis G. Boldue of 17 Fulton St. called the APD and said he had a talking crow. Bolduc said Sunday night that the bird appeared on the roof and remained in the area throughout the day. His son, Michael, 12, kept talking to the bird and after saying “Hello” to it several times, the bird replied with “Hello.” The bird obviously was tame and Bolduc said it would hop onto a person’s lap to eat popcorn offered to it. Late Sunday afternoon Bolduc advised Auburn police of the situation and Patrolman Daniel Blanchard brought the bird to the police station, being nipped on the hand twice in the process.
