Could crows be her totem animals? My husband has the same thing with crows They walk right up to him and seem to speak to him and he sees flocks of them flying over him or sitting on phone wires near him all the time.
I have the same thing with dragonflies, which often appear in hordes near me or fly in circles around my head over and over.
I am not sure what they are there for. Maybe just saying hello. I've always heard seeing your totem animal means good luck and protection, but am no expert on this subject.
