He is always around, somewhere...He sits up high and watches me whenever I am outside. Usually he just watches, sometimes he will talk to me and if he has a message he will get very vocal. I went to pay my insurance the other day, as I pulled into a parking spot he flew down from a tree nearby and landed on the ground a couple of feet from my car. I watched him walk around and he watched me. As I opened the car door to get out, he flew straight at me, turning at the last second and cruising across and over the hood of the car. It startled me. I thought he was aiming for my head. He landed on a low brick wall nearby and started yelling at me, as if I had startled him... I had no idea what he wanted. I walked around the car and headed for the entrance, and he got louder. So I stopped and stood there, looking at him.
"What?" I asked him. "What could you possibly want?" He ignored me, as he often does and turned away from me. I continued into the office. When I came out, I found that he had left me a present, Right in the middle of the drivers side of my windshield...
Now, I have gotten used to having Crow around. It has taken me a few years to truly except him as a guide, and I never trust him. His messages are always cryptic and full of half-truths...I think he likes to see me confused and wondering what he's going on about. And then, when something happens and I fall flat on my face, he laughs... But, he's always around. He has become a sort of companion. He loves it when I'm holding a Ritual, or working a Spell, he sits close by and watches and then, when I'm done he will come down and walk around the area and check everything out...
