A Stormcrow is a minor figure in the Yddr religion dedicated to venerating gods known as the Hroendir. They are the children of Shes and Manene, and appear as great black birds that herald rain, thunder, and high winds. Some also resemble red-beaked black swans. They have shrill voices that call out the names of dead men.

The feathers of a Stormcrow are said to make arrows that fly swift and true when used as fletching. Attempts to kill one, successfully or not, are the subject of many songs and sagas.
