"She feeds the crows in her garden - and they bring her gifts in return."

The BBC brings to attention the very special relationship eight-year-old Gabi Mann has with the neighbourhood's crows. In exchange for the ritualistic feeding they receive every morning, the crows bring her gifts.

There's a miniature silver ball, a black button, a blue paper clip, a yellow bead, a faded black piece of foam, a blue Lego piece, and the list goes on. Many of them are scuffed and dirty. It is an odd assortment of objects for a little girl to treasure, but to Gabi these things are more valuable than gold.

She didn't gather this collection. Each item was a gift - given to her by crows.
