<quoted text>The following is true. I met a crow with a bandaged leg in a pet shop. This bird was talking a blue streak. The owner said the crow had a vocabulary of about 75 words, and after listening to this avian yenta for five minutes, I had no reason to doubt her. I wanted to buy this bird, but it was not for sale.
I think the crow is a beautiful bird. We have lots of them flying around our house. We remain on suicide watch.
Sure it was'nt a Myna Bird.

What's the difference b/t a crow and a raven?
Among other differences, ravens are shinier, larger, and live almost four times longer than crows. Ravens also tend to be baritones, and are preferred by Edgar Allan Poe.

On the similarity side, both crows and ravens look similar in appearance, and both are smarter than Sarah Palin.

I knew a mynah bird. A mynah bird was a friend of mine. The crow was no mynah bird.

Nevertheless, mynah birds are great imitators of human words, especially the stupid ones.

The black birds I'm having trouble with are larger
than any black birds I've seen. They are a ft and
a half to almost 2 feet tall. We were wondering if
these smart birds are ravens or crows.

If they are singing in the dead of night, they are blackbirds.
If not, they could be Black Vultures.

Is it true?
If yes, than it is too sad.
Its not a sign of maturity but I will appreciate that man for his attitude.

I find your comment both unnecessary and offensive Lawrence, to both the crow and raven communities. Of course they're smarter than Sarah Palin, it’s a given – by having to point that out you are being condescending to the birds.

I wonder what would have happened if the crow landed on his pecker?

Long ago I got a LP, No Nukes. There I heard this song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

When my son was born, I felt this. My sister called and asked what I knew. I told her, when my son was 18 or there abouts, there would be a war. He was born in 1982. Trade Towers, 2001.

Good thing you didn't decide to take umbrage. I'm all out.

To all crow lovers:

I urge you to get hold of Leona Anderson's recording of "Yoho The Crow", from her album, Music to Suffer By. While you're at it, also tune in to "Rats In My Room" and "Limburger Lover".

It’s natural to take notice of the fact that the crow has been regarded throughout history in a mysterious and sometimes ominous way. Perhaps more than any other animal, save the bat or the black cat, the crow and raven have been generally depicted in dark situations in both literature and film. Who doesn’t visualize a raven when they think of macabre writings of Edgar Allan Poe and his preoccupation with omens of death? And who can forget the playground scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds”? And just about every movie with a creepy graveyard or haunted mansion, the eerie calling of crows can be heard in the background. Lets face it, they never got the good press of the eagle, the duck or even the lowly pigeon. Maybe they just had a bad publicist!
Yes, crows have been historically associated with death in a very personal way. Add to that the crow’s innate intelligence, and it’s natural that we should have elevated the common crow to a mythological level above and beyond that of a normal bird. So here are some examples of superstitions and folklore that have lasted the test of time. Silly and out of date? Probably. But then maybe you haven’t walked through a dark graveyard lately.
•Crows have been used for the purpose of divination since the time of ancient Rome.
•Finding a dead crow on the road is good luck.
•Crows in a church yard are bad luck.
•A single crow over a house meant bad news, and often foretold a death within. "A crow on the thatch, soon death lifts the latch."
•It was unlucky in Wales to have a crow cross your path. However, if two crows crossed your path, the luck was reversed. "Two crows I see, good luck to me" .
•In New England, however, to see two crows flying together from the left was bad luck.
•When crows were quiet during their midsummer's molt, some European peasants believed that it was because they were preparing to go to the Devil to pay tribute with their black feathers.
•Often, two crows would be released together during a wedding celebration. If the two flew away together, the couple could look forward to a long life together. If the pair separated, the couple might expect to be soon parted.
•In Somerset (West Country of England) locals used to carry an onion with them for protection from magpies or crows.
•The French had a saying that evil priests became crows, and bad nuns became magpies.
•The Greeks said "Go to the Crows" the same way we would say "Go to Hell."
•The Romans used the expression "To pierce a Crow's eye" in relation to something that was almost impossible to do.
•An Irish expression, "You'll follow the Crows for it" meant that a person would miss something after it was gone.
•The expression, "I have a bone to pick with you" used to be " I have a crow to pick with you".
And add wolves and snakes to the critters that folklore and myths put a burden on, in a big way.

I remember a farmer checking crop seed germination would say "he's playin' crow".

And you know, crows are very intelligent birds. It's been shown that they can remember a face for at least two years ... stalkers they might be! Maybe that ability is the basis for some the sayings listed ?!
