Crows are international symbols of mystery, death, magic and intrigue. They have earned a place in fiction as mostly negative elements, but traditionally they have a more dynamic and varied presence.
Crows can travel to different dimensions like the dream realm, the land of the dead, home of gods, hells and heavens with ease. They frequently carry messages to and fro the world’s.
A group of crows is called a murder of crows and this imaginative description relays the public’s opinion of them. They are very intelligent, as intelligent as most primates in fact.
They are very socially developed creatures, having complex methods of conversing with each other. This, coupled with highly developed memories, their behavior is unlike any other family of birds.
In all cultures, crows are harbingers for change. They represent the deeper and powerful elements of nature. They are present wherever there is life and death. They are omnivorous and born survivors, some have even been documented using tools. They are not subject to the same whims as other birds. If they choose to go somewhere, it is because they want to, not because their survival depends on it. It makes the choices in destination all the more peculiar.
