So yesterday evening I heard a loud Crow squakkkk and glanced out the patio door and saw what looked like a dark butterfly take off from the Crow feeding area, make a loop around a tree and then land by some bushes.
My neck started tingling because it also sorta looked like a feather. My intuition got all RED ALERT so I went out to look and after a moment found that Crow feather on the ground.
It had started where I feed the Crows and where the first two feather gifts were but the wind blew it away. If Crow hadn't alerted me I might have missed it.
Best part!! Crow was actually on the patio roof! When I bent to pick up the feather it flew right over my head!!
I have been leaving food and water out for the Crows every day for a few months now. I also leave food for the other yard animals as well but the Crows are my Power Animals and mean much to me. There is a couple, Loki and Toto, who live nearby and I have been slowly earning their trust.
I had hoped to see some sort of sign, I know they have been known to leave gifts to people who help them, but I also know that to ask for a feather, which I have been doing, can mess them up LOL I guess if a Crow sees you pick up a Crow feather, they might think you did something to one of them to get that feather?
Anyway, this morning I walked out and set out the peanuts and on top of the small cement Buddhist temple that I feed them on was a water soaked peanut - all the nuts I put out were gone but this one was dead center and drenched in water. Much like they like to eat them. I was tickled they left me one of their favorite snacks!
As I went back to give them cool and clean water, I froze in my tracks. On each side of the temple was one perfect feather. My heart soared and I was so gobsmacked my brain stopped working for a minute LOL
Crows come to me in dreams and give me messages all the time, but this is the first time they have given me one in person! Pure magic. Aho!
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
