Little Girl Feeds Crows; In Return, They Bring Her Gifts

January 8, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Heartwarming

8-year-old Gabi Mann, from Seattle, has some very unusual friends who shower her with gifts almost every day. Ever since she started feeding her neighborhood crows, they began returning the favor and bringing back all kinds of trinkets.

Gabi’s unique relationship with the neighborhood crows began in 2011, when at age four, she was prone to dropping food. Soon, the crows were always watching for her, hoping to get a bite of the crumbs she dropped. As she got older, she began to feed them consciously – she would share her lunch with them on the way to the bus stop. It wasn’t long before crows were lining up in the afternoon to greet her at the stop.

Two years ago, Gabi and her mother Lisa started feeding the crows as part of their daily routine. Fresh water in the birdbath, peanuts on the bird feeder, handfuls of dog food strewn about the grass. The crows came to rely on this food. To genuinely appreciate it. And it wasn’t long before the gifts started appearing.

Buttons and beads, nuts and bolts, metal balls and Lego pieces. Gabi keeps the thank you gifts she’s received from her crow friends like pieces of treasure, neatly catalogued inside plastic bags inside a segmented storage container.

"It’s showing me how much they love me," Gabi, now eight-years-old, explained to a reporter from the BBC while proudly presenting a pearl-colored heart one of the birds gave her.
