>funchi -- a hooded crow (black head, tail, wings and light colored body)
or black fox. I chose a fox because they live in dens, under earthen
roofs or mounds
Fascinating that the same word could be applied to both. Not sure what
to make of that. But in this context the hoody crow is quite apt, being I
believe the actual bird that the Morrigan in her war aspect manifests as,
rather than the crow or raven (a different bird entirely) which is often
mistakenly taken as her bird.
