Crow teaches the lesson of Observation. Crows are ever vigilant, observing everything that goes on around them. They are fascinated by the comings and goings of every other thing in their environment. This is not due to a desire to learn, rather a desire for the acquisition of knowledge. Crows are nature's worst gossips and cannot keep a secret to save their lives. In greek mythology, Apollo had a crow for a messenger. Back then, all crows were white as snow. But the crow delighted in giving bad news, so much so that Apollo got fed up and turned the crow black as night. Crows also love the sound of their own voice. But crows are also keepers of sacred law and mystery. Crow teaches us that there are not one two or three worlds but many
