ABOUT CROWS People don’t like crows.
In general, the crow is represented as an eternal negative figure in the myths and legends of any nationality. But if our people can look at things from a good point of view, there is nothing wrong with them, according to the tradition of their ancient ancestors, if a crow crows outside the house, they will bless it by saying, “Crow, crow, and lay nine white eggs.”
I was very surprised to hear my parents talking about a crow’s skin being black but its heart white. I thought that he really has a white heart. Crows have a stronger relationship than other birds as a “family”, they stay with one partner for their entire life, after the death of one, they live alone for the rest of the time, and do not commit “suicide” after it, and do not “sing” like swans, smarter and more Ornithologists believe that they are optimistic, patient, and have good ability to adapt and overcome many problems of nature, climate, and life.
On the other hand, if the other one loses its mate, it considers it as a member of its “family” and raises the hatchlings and chicks together, and continues its life by uniting the land it owns. They leave by carrying food to the birds, who are their parents.
It has all the positive qualities of a human, such as being a wonderful family member, helpful to the body, able to carefully build its nest in a safe place, if other birds come to the nest and climb it, it will immediately go away, hardworking, helpful and kind-hearted, who builds a new nest every year. That’s why he has a white heart.
People consider the swan to be the most loyal bird and make it a symbol of love, but the crow is even more loyal and easily gets used to each other as well as people, and trusts the person he/she likes for a lifetime. According to ornithologists, swans lose their mates, but they return to have another pair next year.
There are also sayings that a crow is black but a local bird, and a swan is white but a foreign bird. The beautiful story of the friendship between the crow and the man was brought to the public by the well-known author J. Dashdondog in his book “The White Story of the Black Bird”. There are 12 species of crows in Mongolia, such as crows, black crows, turliachs, and magpies.
Crows are scientifically estimated to live 20-25 years. According to the above book, it is said that a man and a bird, who met in 1948, have been friends for 60 years. This is a true story and a fact. In fact, Mongolians say that crows live for 300 years, but it has not been proven yet.
It is common for shamans from Mongolia and other countries to worship crows as “spirits going to the sky” and symbolizing them. There is such a concept that comes from the explanation that the spirits or the holy spirits of the ancestors live in the body of the crow and fly wherever they want. On the other hand, from the point of view of Buddhism, it is said to be a satellite of a fierce god with a mantra called Gombo. In any case, the crow is a very prophetic and overly sensitive animal.
You know a good or a bad person when you see them, and you will never forget a person you have seen. He will recognize the person who has done bad things to him from a place where no one can see, and he will not only run away, but also warn others.
We write 33 letters minus the hard and soft signs, while the crow makes about 46 sounds and uses them for communication. Any animal, person, machine, equipment, etc. that has not been seen before in his territory will be announced to his surroundings.
Other birds listen to the crow’s call and coordinate their movements. There is also a reason why hunters carry their guns face down. Because if a crow recognizes a gun by its narrower shape than its width, or by its pointed upward like a tree, then the luck of the day will not attack the hunter.
Because it can be understood that the crow recognized the gun and announced it to everyone. Crows crow before strong winds to inform people of bad weather. If two crows sit on the bank of the river and talk to each other, it means that there is warmth and stability in that region.
In autumn, crows gather in large numbers. This means that they are moving out of their parents’ territory in search of new territory. But the parents do not move from the place where they first settled, they die in the country where they know and get used to almost everyone, that guy and that guy, through the language of that area.

One of the characteristics of crows is that they are not poisoned by chemical fumes. When a crow crows outside the house, it is correct to understand that it indicates good and bad things that are going to happen rather than bad things.
