So this girl starts feeding crows outside her home when she is 4 and years later they start leaving items behind. Mainly things like buttons from clothing, nails, paper clips etc. Pretty neat to me, seeing this form of interaction between human and animal. Here is the video, which also goes into more little facts about crows.

People could learn from that girl's ability to befriend these highly intelligent birds.

Indeed they could, and with other animals as well such as dolphins.

Thats neat! Crows are so fun to watch. My crows take the food that I throw out for them and dip it in the birdbath before eating. Not sure if they do it for sanitary reasons or just to soften it up.
My husband trained 3 crows. He found them as babies and took care of them. He could yell, "Hi Crow", and they would immediately come to him. When out in the yard, the crows would walk and hop behind him. They just seemed so content to hang out with him
Very intelligent birds!

Crows also have a language of their own. Different sounds or "words" they make for different purposes. I've seen them make a sound for expressing fun, a sound for indicating their presence to other crows, a sound to check if there's other crows around, and a sound to call another crow's attention.

Wild crows can answer to your calls if you do it right, however you mustn't show that it's you calling them. Wild crows are freaked out when they see humans making crow sounds, so you've got to hide yourself if you're to speak with them.

Yes, unlike humans, crows (and birds, including parrots) make all their sounds with their throat alone.

Amazing. That's great. I had a young robin adopt me once.

Ummm, I feed the crows out back for years, too. Just a few, one day a week. They live a long time and are right there on the day I throw out some old bread.

They never left me anything in return though. I'm not crying about it, just think its out of the realm of their behavior. So I kinda doubt the veracity of all these 'gifts'. Maybe mommy is 'helping', like she does wth the tooth fairy or Santa?

The strangest thing i saw crows do with my eyes was hold a court ?? , In the very early AM summer time i came across thousands of them all round this large council building all SILENT , it was like walking onto Hitchcocks film the Birds set and freaked me out .

When i asked about this later at home i was told one of them had done wrong and was getting punished , and we call them dumb animals

They leave me gifts all the time, maybe they just don't like you.

Crows are such highly intelligent creatures. It's such a shame that as a collective, humans are too distracted to pay attention to the inner clockworks of this place we call Earth. Its things like this we're missing out on....



and this....

I got on the crows' bad side at my college... a friend and I would get drunk and take our BB Gun out crow hunting because they would nest next to our dorm room windows. They definitely recognized us! They eventually moved two blocks down the street.
