I forgot the Title of this Fantasy Novel.

I read a book about a young, girl wizard over 10 years ago and can't remember the name. It starts off with an old wizard who walks into a town where the 10th son of the 10th son of the 10th son was just born, and he transfers upon the baby all of his wizarding power. But the baby isn't a son, it's actually a daughter and this sets the scene for the rest of the book when the girl grows up to become the only female wizard, which rubs a lot of the wizarding community the wrong way.

When the girl is around 10, a wizard comes to her town and assigns a witch to be her mentor so she can learn how to use her magic. The magic of wizards deals more with creating things out of nothing whereas witches deal more with being one with nature. One time when the girl practices transferring her mind into that of a crow, she tries to take over the crow's mind and starts to merge consciousness with the bird and the witch has to untangle her psyche with that of the bird's. I seem to recall the title had Wizard in it but can't remember, and I remember the books was part of a series. Thanks and hopefully someone out there remembers this book cause it was one of the best I've read as a kid.
