Greek Superstition: 



In Greek superstition Crows are seen as a bad omen, often foretelling death. 

Upon seeing Crows cawing, it is believed that the Crows are announcing the death of an individual.  Greeks believing in this superstition will often say to the birds, "Go on your way, and bring me good news."

They're cawing is what is most feared, as it is seen as an announcement of a death that is soon to be heard!  A death of an individual that is likely to be close.
