Crypto Zoology READER REPORT: Crow: Harbinger of Death
"It was July of 2009," reports Ray. "My family and I had been living in Germany for four years. My father-in-law was very ill and the prognosis was not good. I persuaded my wife to leave for Oklahoma that day to be with him. The next day, I was at a local gas station filling up the car. I had just finished paying and was coming back to the car when I saw this huge crow sitting on top of the car above where my son was sitting in the passenger seat. It was just sitting there looking around. There were several other cars at the station and people were pointing at the bird. "I walked up to the driver's door and the crow continued to sit there looking at me. My first thought was it was sick and couldn't fly away. I waved my arms a few times and said, 'Shoo!' but it just continued to look at me. I wasn't sure what to do when it finally slowly flew away. I was a little uneasy, but finally put it out of my mind. "A few hours later my wife called to tell me her father had died a couple of hours ago. I was floored and related what had happened to me. We both felt it was too big of a coincidence. I've never seen a crow act like that before and I haven't since." Thanks for that report, Ray. Crows and ravens have long been thought of as harbingers of death. According to Raven in Mythology: "The association of the birds with death and war is an obvious reflection of its tendency to eat carrion, plenty of which is to be found in the aftermath of battle. This tendency led, eventually, to the persecution of the raven, as a harbinger of doom and destruction, and also to the common notion in modern European culture that the main attribute of Crow and Raven is their connection with the Otherworld."
