Are crows really a sign of death?

For the past week every time I go outside I see this black crow. I know that crows come when something is dead, but are they really a sign that someone is going to die or is that just a myth?

  • The death could also be of something other than a person... such as the death of a plan, etc... death as in failure perhaps... there are so many ways to interpret it, I wouldn't stress it if I were you ;o)

  • Actually, it's a raven that is a sign of death. Not plain old black crows. They are just a sign of annoyance.

  • Thank you because I was just about to say that I looked up on google the pictures for both and I can not tell the difference. All I know is this is a big black bird. I say big because it is larger than most birds i see flying around here.

  • Honestly I don't believe in that, but either way i'd try not to look to much into it because i'd be too freaked to ever leave my house lol

  • In Native American culture the crow is a Power animal - CROW - integrity and doing unto others as we would like them to do to us. Crow teaches us to know ourselves beyond the limitations of one-dimensional thinking and laws. It is about bringing magic into our lives. This animal teaches to appreciate the many dimensions both of reality and ourselves, and to learn to trust our intuition and personal integrity. There is magic wherever crows are. They give us the message that there is magic alive in our world and this magic is ours to use and create a new world for ourselves with.
