A murder of crows fly by the church.

Not just any sausages! The meat was dark and tough because it came from the darkest and toughest of birds! You people humiliated me, so I made you eat crow!

The V.F.D. Crows live the Village of Fowl Devotees. These crows have some very interesting migratory patterns during the day. These crows appeared in book seven, The Vile Village.


The V.F.D Crows live exclusively at the Village of Fowl Devotees with the Council of Elders. The Elders each have a hat with a fake crow on top of it, which Hector is extremely afraid of. The villagers all love the crows.

The first explorers of the area were amazed at the V.F.D. Crows extraordinary migration patterns, and so the explorers decided on the spot that they wanted to live was near the crows.

Their #1 rule is to never hurt a crow. However, Esmé Squalor impaled one with a harpoon gun, and so the villagers wished to burn her at the stake, their only punishment for breaking one of the many rules of the village.

Migration pattern

The V.F.D. Crows roost in the uptown district of the Village of Fowl Devotees in the morning. Then they roost downtown in the afternoon.
