I Turned Into a Crow

I was afraid of this all along.
All this wondering who I am, how I came to be, where I am going, what am I doing here?
The answer lighted on a branch near me.
I am a crow.
I became what I had practiced to become.

A crow.

Watcher and Learner.

Trickster (not by habit, but by nature).

Totem of transformation, clarity, seer of truth hidden, bringer of messages from across the cosmos – beyond time and space, exposer, and healer – even over long distances.

Content alone or in a murder.


Adept at mimicry.


One of a nest of young will stay behind to help the nesting pair raise a subsequent clutch.

Serious quest for food with a strong urge to travel long distances for sources.

Able to adapt to the smallest details in the environment, including using tools for survival.

Maligned by many as cold, harboring bad news or disastrous luck.
