Infected by darkspawn, these black carrion birds gain a thirst for the blood of the living along with a savage nature and cunning. Bloodcrows are larger than their mundane kin, with a dark reddish sheen to their black feathers and blood-red eyes. They have sharp beaks and snake-like tails with small spikes or spines along them.
Bloodcrows usually attack in flocks, striking at the eyes and face as well as any other unprotected or vulnerable areas on their prey. As a group they can bring down much larger creatures, allowing them to feast.
