The hooded crow, with its black and grey feathers and habit of feeding on carrion, was a symbol of death war and bloodshed in Celtic myth and was associated with the goddess of war in various forms. In folklore, the hooded crow was also an omen of death and was linked to the banshee, the fairy women who was heard keening at the death of members of certain Irish families. The hooded crow was also seen in folklore as a clever and wily bird.
