Re: Crows signify death???

Owls are often portrayed in that way and in certain cultures they are linked to death.

I think of two recent films. Biutiful and A single man - where the owl appears and you know death is on the cards and you know death is on the cards.

In Italy in Amalfi - there are owl souvenirs everywhere apparently you give an owl to someone to act as a look out.

in Greek legends associated with wisdom. (Athena carried an owl)

In a recent discussion with a Tibetan, their country sees this as an icon that is watchful at night/and can see in the night.. (This last one sits well with me) I see owls all the time in my meditations.

Just as an aside Florence Nightingale kept a pet owl.
