This 8-year-old Girl Receives Gifts From the Crows She’s Been Feeding Since She Was 4

People love the birds in their garden, and it’s rare for that affection to be reciprocated. This young girl in Seattle is luckier than most.

Gabie Mann feeds the crows in her garden – and they bring her gifts in return. She saves every one she can because they’re from a very special group of friends – the local crow population, which brings her shiny trinkets as gifts in thanks for feeding them since she was 4.

She has gotten a wide range of endowments from the crows, including Lego pieces, globules, catches, paper clasps, and bits of froth. Her most loved endowment of all is a pearl-colored heart; she is convinced that it is proof of how much the crows love her. “It’s showing me how much they love me,” she said.

Once, Gabi even got a piece of metal with the word “best” on it. “I don’t know if they still have the part that says ‘friend‘.” They even returned a camera lens cap that Gabi’s mom Lisa had lost!
