My Navajo Elder friend would say that the Crow is your Totem- spirit animal. We all have them, mines the Hawk, I haven't not seen any daily in many years. Next you need to ask yourself the reason, they are trying to tell you something, what kind of a vibe are you recieving? Negative or positive, this part only you can figure out. Of course this needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but I believe everything happens for a reason, no matter how unbelievable it is.

Ravens and crows,the birds are so intelligent, and many myths, legends and suppositions are associated with them. What survivors, though! They even live above the Artic Circle- I have seen them flying in -40 below zero(F) weather on the North Slope, Prudoe Bay, Alaska. Amazed me!
As they are urban, also- they are all over the Lower 48 (the rest of the US,lol) I suspect your area has a high population, possibly concentrated in your area. Relax-

For a good read, however- on many of the legends, etc. and more about the species- Click Here

Seeing a crow represents your annoying habits and the darker part of your character. Noticing these crows may serve as a message from your unconscious.

The Raven/Crow is my animal spirit guide. He has been with me my whole life. Even when I was a kid we had one as a pet. I still have many close in counters with him. I agree with rivergoddess, and the others that he is trying to tell you somthing. A change maybe?

After the birth of my first son, I heard a lot of noise and went outside of my house to see crows everywhere -- they were in the trees, on the roof, all down the driveway, cawing and circling and coming right back again. I walked down the driveway, and they followed me, filling the trees on either side and across the street. They hung around for 15 minutes. I wondered what it might mean. A month afterwards, we moved, and our lives underwent drastic but positive change.

It happened again at our new place when I was pregnant with our second son. Crows all OVER the place! The baby got quite active during all of this, and I took it to mean that crow is his spirit animal. Once again, this period was followed by great change, but this time there was a darker element in it as well. Interestingly enough, the danger came from the direction in which all the crows suddenly departed.

Crow is one of my totems. Every day I am visted by at least one crow and the day doesn't seem complete until he appears. I see him in his trckster guise (similar to the pixies) although he has a serious side too.

i didn't think i was THAT annoying or dark...

anyway, thanks for all the info guys. I hadn't even fathomed the whole spirit guide thing. Thats a completely new topic for me to venture into. What is a spirit animal anyway? is that sort of like a guardian angel...but in animal form...?

you have to determine wether you get good vibes or bad vibes from them

(sorry, i kind of butured your quote)
im not really getting any bad vibes, i mean, im not really worried or anything, its just creeping me out, you know? It's unusual to be followed by packs of big black birds. Maybe its a good thing, if they're gaurdian animal spirits (going on assumptions here) than it would be pretty comforting to have them around.
any thoughts?

Rivergoddess has a point about the Change symbolisim in Crow Sightings. I've been seeing the same thing the last two weeks or so. I first noticed it when a crow dove right for my windshield and bearly missed it. Then I've seen them sitting nearby me when I go outside... Just it seems everytime I turn around there was a crow! Now at first I was a bit scared hopeing it wasn't an omen of death or something.... I had a good friend die during this time. But I'm also in the process of changing jobs. So either way, I think the crows are telling me something. I'm pretty sure that Crow is my totem, seeing as I've always seemed to have an affinity for them.

I always seem to see a Robin, at least once a week on my walk to work and once on the way home. Although its near enough around the same place everytime so I guess its home might be near by.

How do you know your totem animal then...?

Crows are smart animals, and highly attracted to anything shiny or glittery. Crows have been known to snatch twigs that are smouldering out of campfires or cigs still burning and bring them back to the nest. Thier nest is usually located in a barn, or near a house. Then the nest catches fire, the house or barn burns down, and the Crow is associated with Bad luck, or bad news.
We have a manufacturing facility, and when we dump Aluminum in the bin for pick up, the Crows will gather and try to take the aluminum chips back to their nest, we have to cover it with sheeting to prevent them.
there was a clip on discovery channel about a crow that would lay acorns in the crosswalk, fly back up to the lightpole, wait for the light to turn, let the cars pass, wait for the walk sign, and fly back down and gather the acorns now shelled by the passing cars.
smart animal, probably sees something you have that it wants.

Yes, Crows are intelligent.
They can tell one person from another too.
Example, if one person trew a stone at a crow. Then whenever this person went outside the next day, a whole bunch of them would act like they were shouting at him ("You bastard"). Maybe one crow tell the others: "Hey, there he is. The one who trew a stone at me yesterday". If however another person came out the same door, they would be quiet. They knew which person trew the stone and who didnt. So be nice to crows, they will remember you if you dont ...

They also have their own lawsystem. Ever noticed thousands of crows gathering together (and not to eat)? It means they are having a trial. The Crow-court is set. A crow have broken their law and is now being judged. If he is found "guilty", the other crows will execute him. Hack him to pieces...

... but a bird was dive-bombing me the other day when I was walking down the street - it was scary! I felt like I was in the movie The Birds! I actually had to swing a bag I was carrying at the bird to fend him off!

Then I realized (as he kept going back and forth to this tree) that he was defending a nest and perceived me as a threat... brother!

Still pretty weird... never happened to me before.

Crows? Got me on that one... but there's tons of them here that hang around the fast food restaurant parking lots and just STARE in that menacing way ... like gimme a fry or ELSE!

Sorry, I giggled for a bit my freind. You're avatar of a man running does not help your case either !


I have no clue why these crows are following you. By the way, have you seen the movie, " The Crow ".

I was at a wedding a last year and the reception was outside. There must have been about three hundred people there. Guess who got dive bombed by a seagull ?
Yuck !!!

I was on Straterra... cured my bi-polar as well... I hate the stuff! I felt like I was popping ephedrine every day, even though it is not a classified stimulant. I'll deal with my ADD, better than being drugged up (personal opinion).

Well, sounds like you have a bird problem. There's only one good way to get rid of them and that's to show them that humans got to the top of the food chain for a reason. So go buy this and be rid of them.

Sorry to rag, but that is a big problem... 'if you don't like it, kill it' is not reasonable by any means. I grew up around people who would just shoot a dog because they were moving to a place that didn't allow dogs. I saved an iguana that someone left in a dumpster because they were moving... sry, but even if you were joking it isn't something to be taken lightly.

Man, I read the original post and about died!
I had to mail the link to my friend.

almost exactly 10 years ago Dan had the same problem (well... not really a problem). He would leave his house and there would be a flock of crows waiting for him... everywhere he went, it was wierd! Since then I've always kept an eye out for stuff like this and haven't seen it since.

Maybe your medication is made of Crow pheremones.

Joking aside, it could be a perception thing, when your state of mind changes you begin to percieve things in a different way. The crows were probably around before, but you just didn't notice them.

Anyone think there may be a seasonal component? Do crows migrate or change territories, or change activity patterns based on time of year?

It could have been worse.
What if you had been followed by cows...?

I recently received a concussion to the back of my head and almost died in my apartment. I have been trying to remember the events of the day before and what lead up to my demise.

Your post triggered something. I remember crows following me around for the last 3 months. Lots of them and everywhere I went. Also I remember a Possum that I had a chance to pet. Its all a big blur. I'm wondering if it was some type of warning for future events. Maybe there is a link.
