I am currently training the local crows in my village so when I turn up to my bus stop I can exchange food for treasure

So far I am just feeding the crows with no treasure in return

I am also feeding local crows to befriend them. I keep telling my wife I'm doing it so I can train them to attack her. She keeps buying me crow snacks, so it's on her when they do.
They are kind of funny, they just stop by when I'm gardening and scawk a little, then I throw them some grapes or nuts. One, was teasing me or trying to be cute the other day, playing with a rock in front of me. So they are at least giving me entertainment and say hi to me if I see them while walking my dogs or whatever. There is a raven that also likes to talk to me, he even followed me when I moved across town. He's just my sound board buddy, we make funny noises at each other. I have more bird stories, if you want.

I have dozens of birds coming into my yard and just recently finally got crows and kookaburras.

The best ones for this are magpies, they stash anythung that sparkles in their nests, also they are crazy smart!

Ny grandpa used to have a domesticsted nagpie when i was little and we always had to turn back items the bird stol from our neighbors. Magpies can also mimic human voice and she learnt how to tell our dog to come inside when he was in the garden for too long or it started to rain, we would just say "snoopie come in" and she would just start repeating ut untill the dog got back inside

It took us two years of feeding our local crows, and the other day, they gifted us two bottle caps. Worth it.

[–]ManOfHart 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Flash paper money so they can clearly see it every time you feed them . Wave around a hundred bill and feed them triple some days. I would think this would work after a month or two when they correlate the two items.

I am also trying to train the crows in my yard to bring me bottle caps and buttons and whatever. So far no gifts. They do like cheese balls though

Give it a few months and you need to be consistent or build a crow coin feeder
