The girl who gets gifts from crows...

An eight-year old girl in Seattle has an unusual relationship with the crows in her neighborhood. She began feeding them around the age of four and now they return the favor by giving her trinkets.


The crows would clear the feeder of peanuts, and leave shiny trinkets on the empty tray; an earring, a hinge, a polished rock. There wasn't a pattern. Gifts showed up sporadically - anything shiny and small enough to fit in a crow's mouth.

I once watched a little dog that belonged to a little girl get snatched out of her backyard by a big ass hawk. I doubt it was a gift though.

I clicked on your link. That was about the coolest thing I've ever read.

I wonder if Poe had the same connection.

Thank you for sharing that.

She lost a camera lens cap in an alley well taking pictures of a bald eagle, She couldn't find it. Not sure if it was the day after or during that week but she found her lost lense cap in the food trey where the crows leave their presents.

She watched a bird cam she set up and a crow did indeed bring it back, And is even seen rinsing the lense cap in the bird bath.

Pretty amazing stuff. I'l need to start feeding the wild animals again.

Maybe il Feed a bear. And form a deep relationship with the Ursus clan.

I saw this on the web word: *jealous*

I feed the birds all of the time and I LUV crows - they're smart as hell. But no dang crow ever left me a treat except one I had to clean up.

There's an awesome video on youtube about animal communicator Anna Breytenbach interacting with a black panther. You can read about it (and watch the video) in This thread on ATS.

I posted this experience quite awhile back and I would like to share it again with you if you don't mind.

Crows are amazing I love birds and have fed them for years. I had a very special crow that had to be the matriarch or a very old male VERY VERY LARGE I named this crow White Wing because every other feather in one of her wings was white only in one wing though the other wing was normal.

This bird was amazing and I felt deep love for her ( and her large family) we fed them all our leftovers in a spot in our back yard and she would sit on my top deck and caw for me to feed her scraps and bread almost every day for years. She brought me such pleasure watching her eat through my sliders from the dining room.

She would leave me pine cones and sticks on our table constantly sometimes she would leave a large fluffy plume from the tall grass that grew by the lake.
Even if I didn't see her when I went to get these little presents she left I would make a big deal about it thanking her for it.
One day coming home form work I bought a couple corn muffins I didn't finish one so I left it on the table for her
I sat and sipped my tea and there she was ..she hopped on the table ate some of her muffin I talked with her a bit
then she flew off with the rest of the muffin.
I didn't see her for about 2 days and actually I remember saying to my husband we didn't really see any birds in that 2 days very strange.
I came home from work with my husband on the 3rd day that I didn't see her and went to the deck to scatter the night befores bread for her and right in the middle of the table was a old beaten up key chain with a pretty scratched silver beaded tag on it we were so amazed I really loved this bird she had such a personality.
We never saw her again after that day I WAS SO HEART BROKEN.......(eyes tearing up now) I continued to feed all her family. That was back in 92 through 95 or so at least I had a few years with her.

Crows are way smarter than we give them credit for.

There is one that lives near me here in France who picks snails out from the grape vines and places them in the road about two feet from the verge so cars will break the shell for it to eat more easily. It always puts them in the same place and other people have witnessed this too.

I always oblige and aim just right when I drive by.

So very cool ... the rotten squirrels that raid my bird feeders never leave me a thing.

Wow,what a heart warming story.
That little girl has got a great collection-she should do a school project on her friends the crows-she would get top marks I bet.

I expect she will be a crow specialist when she grows up.

Years ago, I read an article that suggested crows are the Einsteins of the avian community.

A squirrel let me scratch it's head once. Almost as cool as this crow story.
