Although rare, some gryphons choose to leave the company of their own kin to join instead with groups of local birds, typically birds like crows that roost in jovial flocks. It may seem a quiet existence for the gryphon, for the language of gryphons is not like those of birds, so the gryphon is left unable to speak with its peers. Still, the groups always seem comfortable enough, and sometimes strong bonds can form between the two species.
Some speculate that some gryphons just prefer the more wild, natural lifestyle of the birds, for gryphon societies can be quite fierce and competitive. While we may hear the loud, uncouth calls of the crows, perhaps the gryphon hears a hundred merry voices live free and playfully. Good company is good company, regardless of where it is found.
