Okay, this is kind of ominous.

An ancient wizard wants to deliver an ominous message of your approaching doom. How does he do it? Snapchat? Snail mail? No, obviously he selects his trustiest bird companion, the relentless crow, a messenger that will stop at nothing to deliver his words.

At least, that’s our explanation for why this crow is so obsessed with breaking into someone’s house.

YouTube user Ben Evans spotted the bird flapping and pecking away as it tried to break through a window in his house. The tireless crow kept going for a full three minutes until Evans finally scared it away.

The first comment on the video was someone suggesting the crow was a deceased family member who wanted help solving their own murder. It’s a solid suggestion, but we’re sticking with our wizard-prophecy theory.
