Did you know that Ravens not only remember people who help them, but also that they tell their friends about the kindness? In field studies, researchers have observed that whenever a human assists a raven or crow in trouble, the entire community of these corvids, not just the bird that was helped, becomes generally friendlier toward and more trusting of the human benefactor. Smart birds indeed!
"Some people believe that ravens guide travelers to their destinations. Others believe that the sight of a solitary raven is considered good luck. While a group of ravens predicts trouble ahead. And a raven right before battle promises victory."
Samhain Crow Cawing Crows calling, On gusty Autumn Breeze. Goddess sent guides Swirl round leaf-letting trees. The apple of life Returned to the Earth, From darkness to light And the gift of re-birth.http://www.paintingdreams.co.uk/image.php?name=samhain-crow=sacred_creatures_paintings Gorgeous Artwork x
The Morrigan is a Celtic goddess of battle, strife, and sovereignty. She sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors, and in the Ulster cycle she also takes the forms of an eel, a wolf and a cow.
