Thread Name: Origins: Crow Scaring Songs
Subject: RE: Origins: Crow Scaring Songs
Here in south eastern Wyoming we have crows, magpies and grackles. Police used to shoo off the grackles using shot guns (noise, not killing them) because they carry encephalitis. Crows and other birds carry West Nile Virus. Personally, I like crows and magpies. Wish I could have a pet crow, but very forbidden.Also, lots of stuff in old Irish lit. about prophesying by crows. If anyone is interested, I have some and will post it.
