What's the Meaning of This?





Many ancient societies believed that birds conveyed signs from the gods. The appearance of certain kinds of birds was seen as a good omen. Others were clear indicators that disaster was on the way.

What would the ancients have made of the rare albino crows that have recently been spotted soaring over Vancouver? Maybe they've come to bestow blessings on the city. Or maybe, just maybe, they're a sign of an especially horrible post below.

(Thanks, Kiel!)

I believe that the crows are probably a sign of the feet because in some cultures white means death count the crows, are there five?

Crows like shiny things... [lol, that was random! XD] Most people consider crows bad luck... But I personally don't believe that. But white crows? All I can say that they look soo pretty!! o^-^o

I said, "Those are CROWS?!" because I'd never seen an albino one before.

I heard on the news that when the albino crows were found they were being encircled by many black crows above them. Apparently the black crows were very agressive and protective when citizens tried to take it's picture.
