I know with crows that they watch your every move.
When I turn to look at some who are close, I see their body get ready to lift off, if I move any tiny bit closer, they fly away.
Anyway I walk accross this big field, which has quite a few crows living there.
I can feed them, but they won't come to me, what I do is throw some food while I'm walking accross. And when I get far enough, they come out of all
their hiding places to eat what I put on the floor. They were watching me all along haha, they quite clever and sly indeed.
p.s I think they have great memory and you can gain their trust too, I just recalled this. I used to work somewhere for 2 weeks, and every day I went
outside and took a lunch break. There were crows hanging around, every day they came closer and closer, and I quickly gained their trust, they would
even eat food out of my hand haha (maybe they were already used to humans). They became fearless. There were so many surrounding me I got a little
worried, people must have thought I was like catwoman, but crowman instead lol. Seriously they were the best memory of that workplace. Best lunch
Sorry for being slightly off topic, but yes, eyes are very interesting, and tell us a lot about what someone is like, or what they are feelings.
Sometimes you can instantly know if someone is good or bad news just looking at their eyes.
