Bird Feed - Freshly Served

Turns out that Ishani and I are not the only people who flew in to get some food from my mom. This crow has been a regular companion ouside my mom's kitchen (across a screen) since it was little. It follows my mom, jumping from one side of the window to the other as she moves around the kitchen. When it was little, the crow used to caw till my mom put some food out there. But now, it is well behaved and just waits the turn. 

My mom explains in the video that the crow does not like rice as much as the thick layer of milk fat (left behind when milk is boiled and cooled, as seen in video) and egg yolk. Also, she is visited by 4 pigeons later in the day for more food.
