After Years of Helping Crow Family, Man Was Left ‘Mind-Blown’ Over Their Homemade Gifts in Return
Stuart Dahlquist was a backyard bird-watching enthusiast. Five years ago he came across a crow family living in his tree. One day he found the two baby birds on the ground, with no parents in sight. He knew he had to help the babies. Though the parents were highly distressed during his rescue, he was able to safely scoop the small crows up and put them safely back in their home. Just in case of another fall, he began leaving food and water out at the base of the tree. After that, he decided he would continue to put food out in his front yard for the birds. As a gift of thanks, the birds left him a fir sprig intertwined into a soda can tab that had been placed in the spot where he always fed the crows. Even though there was never communication, the birds knew that Stuart was helping them.
