aanteekwa kiilhswa is the second month of the Myaamia lunar calendar.  It is named for the American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos), which usually nests and breeds during this month. During the winter months, aanteekwa often gather in large groups but as the nesting period begins this behavior comes to an end.  In the midwest, aanteekwa are some of the earliest birds to build nests and lay eggs.  Like the other lunar months named for birds, aanteekwa kiilhswa typically occurs during the transition from pipoonwi (winter) into niipinwi (summer).  Usually by the beginning of aanteekwa kiilhswa, maple sugaring is in full swing.
