Crows Reward Kindness

An 8 year old girl, named Gabi, started feeding crows on her way to school, then more and more came and followed her home where she fed them too, then they started leaving her thank you gifts. They say crows are smart, but giving back trinkets as a reward, that's incredible.

I have been feeding my neighbourhood birds for a very long time now, and all they leave me is their poop (which I am happy to get to fertilize my flowers), but it's unintentional on their part. lol.gif

Gabi:
İmage

Quote:The crows would clear the feeder of peanuts, and leave shiny trinkets on the empty tray; an earring, a hinge, a polished rock. There wasn't a pattern. Gifts showed up sporadically - anything shiny and small enough to fit in a crow's mouth.

One time it was a tiny piece of metal with the word "best" printed on it. "I don't know if they still have the part that says 'friend'," Gabi laughs, amused by the thought of a crow wearing a matching necklace.

Trinklets the crows leave for Gabi:

İmage

Quote:Through sparrow black wind
a dead crow calls out to his wing
we were lightning across the whole world
we were lightning
and the guise to black cats we made a cross when our shadows met
and the guise to black cats we made a pact when our shadows passed
through sparrow black wind
a dead crow calls out to its wings
I'm getting weaker I'm getting thin
I hate how obvious I have been
I'm getting weaker
and I look down and see the whole world
and it's fading

Interesting! Who'd a thought. I feed the ravens at work uneaten lunch but never got a trinket.

I had pigeon... Or dove perhaps it's called. Plucked them myself.

A bit dry I thought 13.gif Maybe because I didn't cook them myself...

Quote:Squab - In culinary terminology, squab is a young domestic pigeon, typically under four weeks old,[1] or its meat. The meat is widely described as tasting like dark chicken.

blink.gif What is 'dark' chicken? Black chicken? Chicken with a gamey taste?

Of course not rofl.gif but it was a long running joke. Black chicken (name was Toby) lived a long happy life.
