The Girl Who Gets Gifts From Birds

Lots of people love the birds in their garden, but it's rare for that affection to be reciprocated. One young girl in Seattle is luckier than most. She feeds the crows in her garden - and they bring her gifts in return.

Good story. When I would walk to my car after work, about 3 blocks away, the crows would line up on the telephone wires above me. At one point I felt like they were talking to me so I would talk back. . . . and their numbers grew, always waiting for me.

Crows and their cousins, ravens and jays, are supposedly among the most intelligent birds on the planet. I've seen crows in action, and I'll never use the term "bird brain" for a dummy ever again!

Thank you so much for such an uplifting story, goodness knows we need more of them. My utter love goes out to this incredible little girl! Wow, to catalog all the gifts she has received and appreciate them. To think she started this outpouring of love when she was only a four year old. This young lady will make an even greater mark on the world!

Such a pleasure to read your post Evelyn. Yes Crows are intelligent birds. I saw a Crow watching a Cockatoo eating a mandarin on top of the tree. The Crow emulated the Cockatoo's ability to pick up the mandarin in its claw & proceed to eat it.

Beautiful story and an amazing little girl. When I lived in Seattle I had an artist friend that had a pet crow, found as baby that had fallen out of the nest. He had a broken wing so by the time he was treated/ healed, it was too late to return him to the nest. Intelligent, rambunctious and funny bird! Thanks Evelyn
