Muninn

Muninn

One of the two ravens that sat on the shoulders of the god Odin in Norse and Teutonic mythology. Muninn’s name meant memory that of his brother Huginn. Every day these birds flew across the world noting everything that was happening they left in the morning and returned to the god by breakfast of the next day to report all they had seen.
