This bird is a common Archetype or thematic symbol when one must sacrifice the past in order to meet the future. This type of dream commonly coincides with intensive therapy or when you are going through transformation of a spiritual nature. The Crow or Raven can be associated with the ‘one-eyed’ god Odin, making sight or perspective a subject of exploration. Often there is a need to sacrifice the physical for something more spiritual.
