"Birds that bring gifts and do the gardening" Alison from Washington's story made me tear up.

Albino Crow

A truly rare bird - Albino Raven - ". The birds are thought to be leucitic and not albino, the result of a genetic defect producing chicks lacking normal pigmentation." Two black ravens with this gene will produce a white raven.

Those interested in perusing the very early stories of ravens should note that they often speak of the raven as the Crow.    The Raven is often associated with Water, often with the finding of Water, or lack of it. Sacrificing Gods sent the Raven for Water, but the bird delayed his mission to wait for some Figs to ripen. Angry, the Gods punished the Raven by cursing him with a great thirst in the Summer, which is said to be why the Raven croaks.

Those interested in the very early stories of ravens should note that they often speak of the raven as the crow, the two are often interchanged in myth folklore
