The Waring family in the United Kingdom has had an extra guest for dinner lately; a bird that pays for its meals. The magpie, a regular diner at the Waring family home, eats bread crumbs and then pays for its meals with money it finds.
Gill Waring began leaving bread for the bird on a garden table and noticed one or two coins were being left behind each day.
She said: "I was baffled because I didn't know how the coins got there and then on day I looked out of the window and saw the magpie leaving money."
So far the bird has left about $3 on the table. - http://ananova.com
