* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

No one can say anything definitive without a lot more info, but crow populations--corvids in general, as well as raptors--took a bad beating from the strain of West Nile virus that landed here in North America a few years ago. For some reason these types of birds were particularly vulnerable, and it proved lethal in many of them. That may explain the loss of many of your crows...though in my area (NY) populations seem to have bounced back.

Loss of wrens might be due to habitat loss. Gulls, I can't even guess; they typically thrive alongside humans (esp. near our trash dumps!)

 
I'm not sure what it is, but all bird populations here are down severely. I mean, there used to be just FLOCKS of seagulls in the parking lots. Now you might see 5 in a parking lot... 1 parking lot... once in a while.

The wrens come for my seeds that I put out... so if they're anywhere around, they should be coming during the times I put it out. But I get perhaps 7 or 8 birds of any kinds at all these days. I used get enough birds that I'd have to bring the seed in until later morning or they'd wake us up with their chatter and fighting!

Thinking it's either Odin or the Morrigan.

Not sure which, or why the crows.

 
When the Morrigan came into my life it was at a time when I felt really helpess and needed to learn about fighting for myself and learning who I needed to become. A long story short, she was invoked by a friend in a half annoyed fashion and her presence infused the area we were in. Within the next few weeks crows began to end up in my path... dead ones! I think now it was a sign trying to show I was being stagnant and had to change my life around. It was almost 5 years before I figured out what I needed to do and now I see crows flying everywhere, and hearing their cries is very calming and reassuring to me...

I would look at the myths of both Morrigan and Odin, since those are the two you mentioned then something in the back of your mind is pretty sure it is one of them. Maybe something in one of the myths will knock something loose spiritually :)

Maybe. But since this post I've walked away from ALL gods. Odin and Loki claimed me but now neither of them give two shakes about me.

I've dropped all religion from my life and it's real quiet on that front now.
