I live on six acres in a wooded area near Beaufort, SC. About 7 years ago a group of 4 crows showed up in the yard. After about a week of watching, I started feeding them peanuts that I placed on a post in the yard. A couple weeks later I found a nice white stone on the post. I asked my husband if he put the stone there, he did not. A few days later a burned piece of wood from across the road from a prescribed burned area, was on the post. I got so excited I started taking pictures of the presents that would show up. This lasted for some time, but now there are no more presents on the post. However, the crows are now 6 in number and still arrive in the morning for a handout and a “ loud discussion” about their day. They will sit close by on a pine limb and wait for me to put out the peanuts. It is a ritual we both look forward to. The crows are some of my favorite neighbors.
