Crows

crowSeeing a single crow is very unlucky. Two crows mean good luck! Three  means health, Four means wealth, Five is sickness & Six mean death!

If you see three black crows together that means someone in your family will die. I saw three when my sister died a while back. My best friend’s father died around the same time.I’ve been seeing single black crows for some time now. I was told when this happens, I will hear of a death of someone I know. I remember this well, I was out on break at my job and a crow landed in front of my car and hawked at me. The same day, the vice president of my company died.

    Hi,
    When a crow lurches on your compound and crows repeatedly, there is a belief that some guests will arrive for food. It is habit and belief that if freshly prepared food is kept for crows and call them ‘Ka Ka Ka’ and if they come and take food ,our ancesters will come and take food in the disguise of crows , thank and bless the family.

  2. I’ve never been suprsticious about most things, but I do sometimes wonder about the sensitivity of animals and birds.

    In 1999 an owl sat out side my Fifth Avenue Apartment for weeks and each morning would give it’s owl sound. My wife was very sick at the time and did indeed die later in 2000.

    Just over three months ago In early April of 2010 I heard an owl out back of my apartment for a couple of days, then a Cardinal came flying up to my kitchen window. My daughter saw the Cardinal which was very animated at the open window with a screen on it. She commented “That the Cardinal seemed to be talking to her, trying to tell her something.” In less than two weeks my daughter was dead. She was in perfect health.

    I think that the explanation is simple. They have built into their brain and/or nervous system something that can pick up negative vibrations from afar of illiness or death. Just like bats with their built in radar.

    Hi, sorry to hear about terrible lost Scott. It’s always terrible when love ones past away and hope you and your family cope okay.
    But please do not state and mix up the gathering of animals with coincidental acts of death. There are millions of people who die and there as many millions of crows or what ever animal you choose to fit your belief that fly, crawl, swim around this little planet. Crows have as much insight as you and i have of telling what’s going to happen next. and yes its lovely to believe in such stories of woe, but its clearly not FACT! and every single creditable scientist on this planet with prove this to you

    I have been plagued by crows since early 2010, since which i have had my long-term partner who i have 3 autistic children with leave me, my horse Claude god rest his soul died at the young age of just 9yo, my always reliable well kept car snapped a piston rod which stabbed a hole through the engine costing me thousands of dollars to get back on the road and is still undergoing repairs, i lost my house before all this and have moved to a homeless support unit also stayed in crisis motel type place and have been moved again into a different crisis housing place, i have lost my job and am struggling too survive, my children are the reason i carry on.

    But yet since my long-term partner and father to my three children has left, i am plagued by crows, they turn up at parks where i take my children on weekends, beaches, home, even at petrol stations i see them everywhere and cant help but think there must be some sort of link.

    Anyone with information please feel free to contact me via email cathleah82@gmail.com

    I am keen for answers or ideas, the bad luck i have suffered over the past year has a reason or meaning behind it and i am determined to understand and learn more about it.

    thank-you

  9. Cathy says:

    Yesterday on the top floor of a parking garage (9floors) a women committed suicide. My friend & I had just parked, saw the woman on the ledge when out of no where a black crow flew in front of our car causing us to look the other way. He perched next to our car on the ledge and stared at us. I asked him if a black crow meant somethings bad’s about to happen. He said “Yeah, only if there’s one”. We jumped out of our car, but she had jumped right when that crow landed 3′ from our car. I’m a believer.

    My boyfriend passed away last Sunday. Two dys later I had a good friend stay w me because I didn’t want to be alone. My boyfriend always thought that me and my friend ha something going on because we are close and hejust happens to be a male. We walked outside to leave and there were 3 crows sitting in the tree and then they flew off. I was just wondering if that meant anything.

  17. Kailey says:

    I was on my way to get some sunflower seeds at my brother game I passed by a tree and a bird fell dead I was wondering if this was some kind of omen.

  18. Wendy says:

    This was very surreal. Can anyone explain ? It was my birthday on Friday 13th July. I am not superstitious but had a strange feeling all day that I couldn’t shake I returned home at lunchtime to find my bedroom in a mess with bird poo everywhere but no bird to be found. Only 2 high windows were open slightly. My 2 cats were not making a fuss in the room. Went out to celebrate and there was no further disturbance in the bedroom when I got home. At 5.30am I heard scratching behind the wardrobe and then a huge crow appeared on top of the wardrobe. How on earth did it get in ? I can’t imagine either of my cats could have caught and brought such a big bird through the cat flap and they wouldn’t go anywhere near it. I wasn’t scared, just amazed, and the bird caused no trouble and I let it out easily. But knowing of its reputation, the date and my search for a new direction in life, I can’t help but find it a little bit freaky and think there’s a message for me there. Your comments please !

  19. Hey says:

    I saw a lot of black crows the day before and the day my brother and his kids died. The day my brother died, my father looked at me and said, ” I just saw this big crow in front of your door.” I don’t know what they were looking for. It scared me, because at the time my mother was very ill. I thought it was death trying to take my mom. Later on that day, I was at work and got the new my brother died. Days later I saw several crows on the backyard deck which is connected to my mother’s room. I thought they were trying to tell me something again. I don’t know. My moms fine now. However, she is in a frail state.
    My question is, what is the crow trying to tell us. I believe in God, I believe in Jesus. I’ve never read anything about crows and death in the Bible. However, I cannot help but think those crows were there for a purpose.

  22. Rosaline says:

    Hi all,
    I am a strong believer in the power of the crows. As a pagan, my beliefs only strengthen what others above are saying. Crows are messengers. They can tell you how the day will go, things that can happen in the future, or anything else really, as long as your heart and mind are open to the possibility. Daily I see crows, and a few of my wiccan and pagan friends believe that they are my spirit guide or protector if you will. Counting these “familiars” has become a past time and it has always told me of how my day will go. One is bad, two is good, three is a message, four a boy, five is for riches (haven’t seen five all together yet), and so on. There are a few rhymes for the numbers that can be easily found online. My most recent count was of 22, yet there has been no meaning as of yet. If you have any questions about crow numbers, I will be happy to try and help you! Message me at qwertyuioop@live.ca Blessed evening everyone!

  23. Ruth says:

    My daughter n I were leaving today n on my neighbors fence we saw one single crow,he didn’t fly away when we saw him n I don’t know if he made any noises because we had our windows rolled up.Does anyone know what this means.Help plez.

  24. rita says:

    A few days ago a family member saw 3 black birds seemed to be holding her sister’s oxygen mask on her face. It kept falling off and the person was having trouble breathing. The birds stayed there for a long while keeping the mask over her. Before my mother died, my sister saw a white dove fly over her (my mother’s) doorway late at night, where there are no doves in that area.

  25. rita says:

    A few days later after the 3 bird incident, her sister died. We just wonder why it came as 3 black birds instead of white ones.

  26. mark says:

    I forgot the name of the movie but it wa on sci-fi about a week or two ago.About some haunted farm and the guy who lived their killed his familily and then came bback to kill future family in the home and eventually pulled down into the deep of hell. In the movie it shows a great many black crows flying around the barn and house before the bad things happen.My home(not for long because of eviction) was bombarded with black crows yesterday.I heard one calling me to come out and when I did their were probably 50 of them looking at me from the roof and telephone wire in the back.It made my blood run cold and I went inside and shut the door.

  27. Jack Arable says:

    Interesting … what if you see eight crows at once???

  28. Idon'tbelieveinthesethings says:

    Well I saw many bunches of crows last year and I never heard of any bad luck, to myself or family or friends. And a lot of people must have seen them too, they were at school.

  29. Faith says:

    Last night my wife was laying down in bed pointing to the ceiling saying she saw 3 triangles(this was around midnight).. she was drawing them with her fingers..she said there was a big black bird that she could see. A few minutes after she started growling at me not too loud but a soft growl. At first I thought she was playing. She would do this off and on like if something was making do and sound like this. she even told me something wasn’t right. She told me she see’s a lady sitting down in a dark room that has red carpet and the room had columns in it. I asked who is was she said she didn’t know. But she said the same big black bird she saw was right next to the lady. I asked her if she could see they lady she said yes. I asked if they lady could see you she said yes. She said the lady had dark hair and white with a light complexion. i asked my wife to ask the lady for a name. Thats when i knew what I was dealing with. My wife told me a with a smirk and little growling voice “you already know who I am”. With the same voice she said “Can I ask you a question” I said no. She continued to smirk at me and said with the same eeary voice “if she doesn’t matter to you then maybe will hurt your daughter” (which my 3yr old was asleep right next to us). I know last night that was not my wife but I want to know if anyone out there can tell me what this may mean…the black bird, the 3 triangles, the red carpet in a room with columns and her answer when i asked for the lady’s name. Whats funny is that I did record this on a digital recorder. There were 3 sections. 2 sections recorded fine but the last which really everything was said only recorded 1 second! I just replayed everything for my wife to listen but she says she doesn’t remember anything. If anybody can shed some light here I would be thankful.

    I had a raven or just a really big crow
    Sat in my neighbors tree and looked at
    Me and cawed 3 times and 2 to 3 seconds
    Later it flew away
    The last time this happened it was approximately
    1 to 2 months later
    My husbands boss and wife who was sick a
    Long time with demintia and they were here
    For her doctors appointment.
    But she died in our house in bed the morning
    Of her appointment.
    This was I believe in february 2012.
    Well there was in 2010 and 2011 I had
    One wren and one sparrow at a time thats one each time about 3 or 4 times since may of 2010.
    That woman died here then about 3 months
    Later my husband lost his job.
    Last year my cousin died unexpectedly 3 days after
    His girlfriend died.
    Im worried cause my husband has been having a few health issues
    Lately.
    I wish I knew what this darn crow is bringing this visit.

  38. Ariana says:

    Hi I’m 13 years and for a couple months two crows have been following me and flying around me and above me. Does it really mean death? Cuz my mom recently found a lump in her breast but we’re not sure if its cancer but se won’t go get it checked out.!!! I was wondering what the crows meant, and the same word kept coming to my head… Death. I kept thinking “what if they’re trying to warn me about something. What if they’re signaling my death? Or someone else’s.” they’re also following my friends. Especially when I’m with them.. I’m scared.. Any help? And I already almost lost my mom from a car accident.. Please help!

  39. Audrey says:

    I looked out my window and seen 2 crows sitting on the railing of my deck, then one flew towards my window then they both flew off together. What could that mean??

  40. Lori says:

    My father passed away in march. Suddenly there were several yapping criws in my yard every day they were there for 3 months then suddenly I noticed a group if them flying very high in the sky above my yard in a circle. It looked as if they assended into the clouds. They have never come back. I have researched this and am convinced that the crows come to carry our souls from death to the next life. I am sure these crows took my father to heaven.

  41. Jordan says:

    I got home from work two crows were waiting for me. Every time Ioved they chirped and chirped. I hide behind a fence they leave to where their sitting a tree to fly and sit else where where they can see me. I enter my house through the back. I go in my basemt suit and look outy front window they fly to a tree and just stare at me chirping. Next day I’m home two hours later then normal which was yesterday. Today I’m home normal time and now there is four of them and they follow from front to side of house to back till I go in and them they flew to the front. WYF!!!????

  46. mike says:

    I had a weird day, I drove to town which is 15 miles away, saw 3 crows almost every 3 miles on the road, no road kill. When I left to go home, not 1 crow. when I got home, I watched TV and whatever, 3 hours later I looked outside and saw 3 crows in the back yard. That freaked me out! kinda nervous from what I have been reading so far.

  47. Patrick says:

    I saw at least 20 to 30 crows flying around my trees the other night . flying in circles , then landing, then flying again . what does it mean ?

  48. Shelly says:

    I am not usually very suspicious and I decided to post this as I was looking back at an old text message conversation from a year ago between my sister and myself. In September 2012 a crow landed on my walkway in front of my house just as my youngest daughter got home from school. She refused to walk by it and I had to go outside and walk with her through the garage to get inside. 1 hour later it was dead right by my front door. I thought how creepy and dreaded having to dispose of it. Anyway my sister and I carried on a lengthy conversation by text about the dead crow at my door and if it meant anything. We both chalked it up to just being plain old creepy and forgot about. Now I am looking back at those messages as it was some of the last I had with my sister who died a few weeks later in a car accident. Whether it was a coincidence or a sign. I don’t know, but it was pretty uncanny that they say a dead crow symbolizes the death of someone close to you.

  49. Alan from Indiana says:

    There are too many things in our physical world that cannot be explained away by our “science”. When people realize this, they will begin to accept the concept that there is much more here than just the “physical”. Those that are too deeply rooted in the “physical” are always ready to bash those that are in the understanding/growing stage. There are many signs and symbols that even nature gives us. It’s up to us to determine what they mean to us and how (if at all) it will our lives and well being. So much more I could write here, but not much of a “blogger”. Be well.

  50. Julie says:

    When I hear a crow caw 3 times in a row, someone I know of will pass away with the next week. The closeness of the sound usually determines how close a relationship I had with the person.
    This has happened to me for so many years now, that it is not a coincidence. At first it used to annoy me, knowing that someone was going to pass on and there was nothing I could do about it. Now I see it as a warning sign so I am not so startled by the sudden loss of someone I know. I have learned to be thankful for it and pray for the person that will pass on.

  51. Anni says:

    I don’t know about crows or anything about its superstition but my brothers friend who was 19 and turned 20 yesterday had passed away recently. Now I’m seeing crows outside our house and the keep flying around and cawing how ever you spell it

  57. Wickedpa says:

    “one crow for sorrow ,two for mirth, three for a wedding, fourth for a birth

    last some of days 1or 2 crow was crying to see me ..

  59. Simone says:

    Hi.. Im just wondering if anyone can help me.
    My Nonno (my grandfather) is in hospital dying. Unfortunately it is going to happen & is only a matter of time :’(
    He has gone through so much over the last 2 year’s – it’s heartbraking & cruel.
    It’s a very long story but his little companion (in my honest opinion) is waiting for him to die to be able to take whatever she can from him (money etc)

    The other day whilst driving his car home from the shops I witnessed a crow flying at almost ground level chasing an almost white cat. I was about a metre behind when they came straight out in front of me. I slammed on my breaks & instantly thought omg this poor cat.. I’ve gota get the crow away from it.

    I jumped out of my car & where I had stopped the cat had ran behind a fence & into some bushes. The crow was on the fence glaring at me. As I went closer to the bushes the crow looked at me & flew away (back in the direction it came) .. I instantly lent down “here pus pus” & the cat came out of the bushes & came straight to me & let me pat him or her. I felt like the cat was thanking me for saving him/her. I also felt the crow was majorly pissed off at me for stopping & wrecking whatever was about to happen.

    I cannot shake the feeling of watching the cat run from the crow – it was like I was there to protect this cat & stop the crow from hurting him.

    The same day I saw a group of crows (not sure how many.. At least 5 or 6) out the front of the hospital.. I looked at them & carried on. (really didn’t think anything about them) …

    Back to the cat. The cat was a little older (I could tell by his/her eyes) but so instantly loving towards me. It was white with black/grey patterns on the side. & I felt that crow was evil. . … If it didn’t fly away when it did I would have made it.

    Do we think this could somehow represent my grandfather & his gold digging lying cruel companion ?

    Please help. This is something I will think about for the rest of my life

  60. Dana says:

    Most of the time, I do not believe that crows are bad luck. They have done no harm to me, and usually, even a single crow brings barely any bad luck. The issue I have is that a murder of crows, probably between 50-100 have recently moved near my house, and follow me around, usually in groups of 3 or 6. 3 is health, but 6 is death. What does this many crows mean? I’m not very superstitious, but I feel like the fact that the crows from miles around moving to my neighborhood has to mean something. Help?

  61. marina says:

    Come on people it is only supertitions. I live in Tasmania with plenty crows around, does that mean now Im going to have a death somewhere, ridiculous.

  62. holly hood says:
