Several people leave out birdseed for feathered-friends in the neighborhood, though few get anything in return besides a beautiful view of the birds, as well as a patio polluted with seeds. Eight-year-old Gabi Mann from Seattle, Washington, however, began feeding a crow in her family’s garden four years ago, and now this lucky little kid gets gifts from the crows.
Gabie keeps her gifts in labeled bags tucked safely inside a bead storage box. Her labels are detailed, for example, one containing a broken light bulb reads: “Black table by the feeder. 2:30 p.m. 09 Nov 2014.”
The girl has received all kinds of gifts from the crows, such as Lego pieces, beads, paper clips, buttons, and pieces of foam. Her favorite gift of all is a pearl colored heart; she said, “It’s showing me how much they love me.”
Gabi began feeding the neighborhood crows by accident, as the girl was prone to dropping food. She noticed and started rewarding the bird’s hunger, feeding them food scraps on her way to and from the bus stop with her brother.
She had lost it in an alley near her home while capturing pictures of a bald eagle.
Before she had an opportunity to go out and look for it, she found it sitting on the edge of the birdbath.
Lisa only had to know if it was the bird’s that brought the cap back.
She logged onto her computer and checked on the bird cam. Sure enough, “You can see it bringing it into the yard. Walks it to the birdbath and actually spends time rinsing this lens cap.”
