8-Year-Old Girl Receives Gifts From Crows She's Been Feeding | 22 Words

Animals have peculiar ways of showing affection, whether their wild animals or house pets, they understand and are grateful when we show them kindness.

Birds, in particular, have been found to be very intelligent creatures, more like feathered apes than bird brains. They have been known to bring objects of gratitude to people who help them.

And that's exactly what happened for one little girl who had a special affinity for her flying friends...this video is unbelievable.

Animals are wonderful...

We really don't deserve them.

Some say they'd be better off without us.

But that isn't the case for these adorable creatures, that have shown appreciation in the best way to their human saviors...

This little squirrel has been visiting the family that saved him for 8 years.

When Brantley Harrison and her family found a squirrel that had been wounded by an owl, they cared for her and treated 'Bella' for 5 months.

After that, it was time to say goodbye...

They released Bella back into the wild, however, that wasn't the last time the family got to see their furry friend, Bella didn't forget their kindness and continues to visit the family every day, even after so long.

To say thank you for saving him, this wounded swan hugged Weeze, and put its neck around his. What a moment!

Birds are well known for showing appreciation to those that help them.

In the most peculiar ways...

Especially crows, which might come as a surprise to some...

Sometimes they can even be exactly what you're looking for...

Which is was happened to Amethyst Selma-Selene, from the UK, you won't believe what happened...

Selene had lost an item of jewelry, that was returned just weeks later by magpies, members of the crow family.

"I bought this beautiful Victorian pentacle from America and I had it just one week before I lost it. Three weeks later, on a Sunday morning, I was off to my little shop when three magpies started to swoop down at me chattering loudly."

This is the necklace that Selene thought she'd lost forever...

"Then they swooped down on to the road near the edge of the pavement. This went on for about three minutes until I stepped out on to the road to try and avoid the magpies' behavior. It was then I noticed something shining on the road. And there was my Victorian pentacle on the road. They were showing me where it was, and I was amazed to find it again."

It sounds too good to be true...

But surprisingly many others have experienced the same thing...
