Hugin and Munin travel the world bearing news and information they have collected to Odin. Hugin is the thought and Munin is the memory. They are sent out at dawn to gather information and return in the evening. They perch on the god's shoulders and whisper the news into his ears. It is from these ravens that the kenning 'raven-god' for Odin is derived.
