Gabi Mann of Seattle, Washington has been called “the eight year old queen of the crows.” Some say she has a super power. What is it? Crows bring her gifts!
Crows regularly fly up and drop small objects as gifts. For the past 4 years she has fed them scraps and now they’re expressing their loyalty. According to the BBC:
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.
