Spare me with the anti hunting talk.People in fact hunt animals like predators which i never would.In fact people hunt bobcat and wolf.Now thats something i find a shame.I live in America and its a granted right issued through the dec to be able to hunt crow,deer,waterfowl,etc.

They used to follow me when I was deer hunting-two or three or maybe four, flying to and fro just below the canopy of the forest, but always along my path. They were waiting for the ofal after field dressing a deer. Very smart birds.

Have you been on any lighter stuff for the bi-polar? Im no Dr, so I am not going to try to suggest medicines. I do know from experience that there are a huge amount of options. Some medicines will make you paranoid. Just look up all of your medicines to inform yourself and note anythingthat changes. Even if it seems silly or unimportant- write it down and tell your pdoc at the next appointment. Being more aware of the crows could be an indication of the chemical changes caused by the meds. IT may be something a layman would not even pick up on. The docs use the meds to try to correct an imbalance, so they are messing with your brain chemicals any way you look at it- could be good or bad for you.

Hes not crazy... I've been seeing three all the time
in the past two weeks over two states Ive seen theme at least half a dozen times. I rarely ever seen them before. And things in my life are changing for the better. I believe that they are higly connected with whatever "spiritual" element there is in this world, I have no idea what it all means but I have a feeling soon I will. I believe this guy knows what I'm talking about.

Just three. They definitely notice me, and are there for me, when I least expect it. They are there. Very freaky

if there are enough crows in the area. It wouldn't be extraordinary at all.

I have 4 "cat lady" neighbors. It would be absurd for me to say that cats follow me around just because i see them everywhere.

There's no way for me to know what you're experiencing though. It may very well be paranormal. You should ask the locals where you live if they experience the same thing.

I know this sounds extremely cliche, but for the past 3 months, i have been followed by crows. I usually see them when im driving, they fly right over my truck, usually in 3's or 4's.
At football practice, i look to the buildings next to the field, and notice them watching from the roof.
I woke up the other day and noticed some on the neighbors roof looking right into my _
And generally when im just walking around they'll fly over me.
This has been happening so often now, that it is starting to creep me out. I don't know if im just noticing it more now because im paying attention to it or what..but it definately creeps me out. Anybody study this kind of thing, and advice floating around?


I don't have crows following me per se, but, I do see them quite often, more than I should, frankly..and, when that happens, i know that a change is in the works, I'm about to receive a big piece of information, or I'm in some sort of danger, as I always get a "protective" feeling from them. I don't live out in the boonies, either; I live right in hollywood, ca, not a 10 minute walk from the hollywood bowl.

edit: or are they blackbirds? They're big, black feathers and large-ish beaks, so I assumed crow.. maybe someone can clarify..

Dear Hemps
I had the same thing happen to me in recent times.
There is some significance to it.
You could be a witch, as they are linked to witches. Or you could be undergoing some kind of change, psychically or even rebirth. They are very intelligent birds, and there is an old poem that goes:

'One Crow is ill news Two Crows mirth Three Crows a
wedding Four Crows a birth Five Crows for riches
Six Crows a thief Seven Crows a journey Eight
Crows for grief Nine Crows a secret Ten Crows for
sorrow Eleven Crows for true love Twelve's a new day tomorrow

So count them. I always had three, sometimes one, and they would follow me from home to many places.


Crow: Mysterious Pagan Symbol
Sign of Law, Creation, Magick, Prophecy, Cunning and Trickery
© Jill Stefko

May 8, 2007

Most European traditions view crow as bad omens, problems and death. Many AmerIndian tribes believed Crow was both keeper of the sacred law and trickster.

Crow is a member of the corvid family which includes ravens, magpies and blue jays. They are found worldwide. These birds are highly intelligent, adaptable and omnivorous. They can be taught to communicate with people and to count. Crows are mischievous and like to steal shiny items, but are suspicious and shy.

Crow has been likened to the trickster of Native American power animals. There was a man who hated crows because he thought they prevented him from trapping rabbits. He decided to try to frighten them by putting mirrors on the ground facing skyward so the birds would see their reflections and be scared away. Crow is a curious bird and was fascinated by the mirrors and decided to explore them. One by one, they desecrated the mirrors’ surfaces, then flew into a tree and cackled at what they had done.

Some crows live in flocks called murders and musters, nesting in tree tops. There are sentinels that warn of danger. These animals have a complex language. Other crows are solitary or live in pairs. They will kill sick animals and eat carcasses they find, which is beneficial to the environment.

They are called by different names in Great Britain such as carrion crows, rooks and jack daws. While it is rare, white crows have been found.

Symbolism and Superstitions of the Old World
The Celts believed that Crow was an omen of death and conflict. She was associated with death transitions. Another belief was that the birds were faeries who shape-shifted to cause troubles. Magickal qualities included bringing knowledge, shape-shifting, eloquence, prophecy, boldness, skill, knowledge, cunning, trickery and thievery.

In the Middle Ages, people believed that sorcerers and witches used the symbol of Crow’s foot to cast death spells.

In most of England, seeing a solitary crow meant anger, but in Northamptonshire, it meant ill fortune. Crow, cawing in a hoarse voice, meant bad weather. A death omen was a crow cawing thrice as it flew over a house. The Irish believed that Crow flocking in trees, but not nesting were souls from Purgatory. Finding a dead crow was a sign of good fortune. Russians believed that witches took the shape of Crow.

Crow Medicines and Legends of the New World
Some AmerIndian tribes believed Crow was the keeper of the sacred law and could shape-shift. Crow protected the sacred writings of Great Spirit.

Crow is an omen of transformation. The bird has been associated with the Ghost Dance movement of 1890. Crow has no sense of time and lives in the Void, having the ability to the past, present and future at the same time. The Alaskan Athapaskan tribe believed crow created the world.

Crow is considered to be the entrance to the supernatural and is associated with illusion. Along with Coyote and Raven, Crow is considered trickster. According to the Alaskan Tanaina Tribe, Chuylen, Crow, can shape-shift into a young handsome man. In this shape, he can trick people into getting what he desires. When he is in the shape of a crow, he does the same to animal

Did anyone you know pass away recently?

Sometimes the dead communicate by sending flocks of birds. I don't think those birds are normally crows, but if you could think of someone you know who died and had SOME sort of relation with these birds, it could make sense.

It's a long shot. That's all I can think of.

I had the most surreal experience in the early 90's. My buddy and I were swimming in the pool and barbequing in my backyard. All the landscaping was plush. Bird feeders set up for the sparrows, bluejays, and cardinals when a group of about 6 nasty looking crows flew in. The sparrows immediately attempted to roust them out.

The leader of the pack in midair caught a sparrow in his beak and whipped it to the ground. I yelled at it. It immediately flew right for my face from about 20 paces and I instinctually covered my eyes with my arm. It did not connect but my buddy and I could not believe it.

They shoved off after it tried to peck my eyes out.

After reading second to last post, I am not certain if they were crows or blackbirds. They gleamed deep blue black in the sun and had large beaks.

I haven't read through this entire thread because of all the different ideas I've seen here, but I have one that I can add that you may want to investigate. Among Native Americans, there is a belief that each individual has what is referred to as a Totem Animal - (actually several totems) this is an animal that the individual shows similar or same characteristics of. CROWS - are considered the keeper of natural law - not man's law, natural law. Individuals with this totem have a tendency to be extremely outspoken when an injustice catches their attention. I have found that if you have such a totem, then you may be visited by the related animal as a sign to pay attention to what is going on around you. Many of the individuals I know that have identified their totem animals agree with this - that their totem is trying to tell them something and they must remain vigil.

One other thing - I noticed many on this board have stated the CROW is of the void; this is a common mistake as a result of the movie. The movie is not incorrect, but I think people get take away the idea the movie is about a messenger from the void instead of the keeper of natural law. The main character returns to correct a serious injustice - keeper of natural law. However, many people mistakenly confuse the message of these two birds. It is actually a RAVEN, that is the messenger of the void. RAVENS are much larger than CROWS. Similar to you, I have RAVENs all around my house all the time.

Crows like shiny things and food. You are possessing one of the former.

I am from India and I googled to find this particular forum discussion.I have got the very same experience like the person who has started this discussion but in a very aggressive and scary way. the thing is that when ever i get out of my home and stay out in the yard for a while the crows in the surrounding comes nearer and crows in a very high and disturbing way so that crows from the near-by places starts coming in crowds after me..if I try to get rid of it and I skips to the back yard ,all of them are after me. I often have a weird feeling that the crows have declared war on me and they may attack me at any time.I have never done any thing wrong with the crows as far as I can remember..they use to say that crows 'll attack those who throw stones to its nest or any body who is a threat to its nest..but I have never done any thing like that..
...I have heard of people being hit with its beak and even use its claws to rip off the skin from the head....
I request anybody to help me with this problem in all possible way I am in real trouble

I know this thread is quite old but would like to give some of my experiences...

It all started in 2003, after a huge life changing event in my life, they started following me, since then I would see at least 1 a day.

The first time, i remember being in town, and suddenly heard this caw up above...as i looked up, there was this huge dead tree, and right at the top was a crow. I still remember thinking, that if i had taken a photo of my eyes view, it'd have looked like a photo taken in the wild, regardless of the baren cement city around me. All that was in my view, was this dark blue sky in the background, with this huge dead tree, and this crow just glaring down at me. The feeling was very peculier and almost calming amidst the hussle and bussle all around me.

After that it seemed like they were intent on seeing me daily. when I notice 1, it'd be looking straight at me, and then swiftly look away asif pretending it wasn't looking at me in the first place.

I started asking some friends if they were also seeing crows and many had never even seen one in their lifetime. It was then I started pointing them out to friends, and even they, were alarmed at how many would be around me all the time. When I drove, they would fly with my car, when going on holiday I would drive by big packs sitting next to the road.

I have come to like them and sense a higher meaning to their presence. Even when I stay in the whole day, 1 would attempt to see my through the window by any means possible and go out of their way to make their presence known. Like knocking on my window etc.

My user name actually means Ravens friend lol, chosen for that specific reason.

I have just come to accept that they are there and kinda look over me in a sense, and would feel empty without them :-).

here is a list of things that Crows are spiritually affiliated with:


Crow/Rook's Wisdom Includes:


Guardian of the place before existence
Ability to move in space and time
Honoring ancestors
Carrier of souls from darkness into light
Working without fear in darkness
Guidance while working in shadow
Moves freely in the void
Understands all things related to ethics
Shapeshifter



this is from site: www.animalspirits.com...


maybe there is something you can relate to in the list,
and that's why crow is trying to get your attention in a big way...

I've read every single post here and it has been fascinating for me considering I am going through something that others have experienced as well.

I have something to add:

I went to a psychic for the first time in my life this past weekend and I didn't believe her at all, I thought she was a cold-reader - saying lots of dramatic things to get my reaction and gauge it and work with it. I was cold and emotionless the entire time and would simply nod when she was done saying something and I would say something along the lines of "O.K." "I understand" etc. so she would move onto the next thing.

Then... she mentioned the crows... and I freaked out!

"You're supposed to listen to the crows..."
"Wait....... what did you just say? About the crows?"
"The crows... you're supposed to listen to them... you probably notice they hang around you, they fly around, they hang out with you, they caw at you?"
"YES, what is UP with that?!?!"
*Psychic busts out of trance-like-state laughing*


She mentioned another thing that was very specific that was really just very far out there to get 100% right with cold reading techniques, especially with someone so unwilling to go along with cold reading! I don't think she was a cold reader any more, I think she has some genuine psychic ability, although I am waiting to see how her predictions pan out to finally decide.


I had gone to a psychologist/psychiatrist 2 years previous because I thought I was going crazy because crows were following me and harassing me wherever I went and it was freaking me out, I thought I was going crazy! They assured me I wasn't crazy, I just had a healthy interest in the paranormal and that it was a little strange... the scientists agreed with me that it was pretty "paranormal".


I had met a witch before this started happening, and when I left her home she passed me a story she wrote as a Christmas gift which detailed the role birds have in the natural world, the crow being one of the main characters next to the locust. This turned out to be a really important day for me considering other things that had happened that day...


Anyway, the Psychic told me specifically that the Crows were following me and hanging around because they were trying to communicate with me, and that she understood it is hard to communicate with Crows, but that I am supposed to try. She suggested just observing the Crows and listening to what my own intuition said I needed to do should lead me in the right direction, but that it was important to try because the Crows need my help with something and they are looking to me because they know I can help them.

- In short, I'm kind of the Crows bitch? lol!

She also said that paying homage or thanks to the Crows should be done to show good relations, if I smoke to sprinkle some tobacco on the ground, if I'm eating offer some food, saying out loud that I thank them for their guidance.

She was very clear that this was happening and happens to others who are "Elementals" and it is a great honor and should be treated as such. She said this will happen with other creatures as well, I remember reading a post where someone said that lizards and other creatures besides Crows were following them as well.



What I'd recommend to everyone is to look at this as a blessing and to try and show the Crows that you do want to help, and listen to your own thoughts and feelings and intuition when interacting with them, try and communicate with them, and offer them your thanks.

Thanks for all the posts everyone, this has helped immensely.
Hope what I had to post helps some others looking for answers!

I am hoping all is well for you, but ya never know WHAT a crow might know that we do not...........look inside yourself for this answer......OR see your doctor?

CAW! CAW! CAW!



Or... And I mean this seriously, perhaps the new medicine is making you a bit paranoid? I am not sure what type of medicine it is, but sometimes medicines have some pretty odd side effects.

Now, I don't mean to say that there is no "out there" explanation, or that you are not being followed by crows, but I just think the fact that you noticed it right after you started a new series of medication raised a flag for me.

Talk to your doctor about it. See if maybe it IS the medicine. Perhaps, you and this medication do not mix that well?

I don't know, I just wanted to offer a more.... scientific ( for lack of a better word) explanation...
