Gabi Mann, an eight-year-old animal lover, made a discovery one day when she saw a crow scoop up some food that she had accidentally dropped behind. The interaction was something that thrilled her, so she started feeding the neighborhood crows peanuts on a daily basis. And it wasn’t long after that when something truly magical happened.

It took an interesting turn the day the birds started returning the favor.
