I’ll admit it: I’m a bee bit superstitious. Any time I see crows, I run through the rhyme in my head to see what sort of omen their number might portend. It’s not that I really believe they can predict the future; it’s more like buying lottery tickets, or reading horoscopes, or any of the other little things we humans are still doing to explain or anticipate our fortunes. It’s in our nature to ascribe meaning to the creatures we share the planet with, to seek the comfort which attends explanation, and to somehow relate to black birds that steal shiny baubles and mate for life.
