Crow Kills


CROW KILLS 


Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority found 
over 200 dead crows near greater Boston recently, and there 
was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.
A Bird  Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to 
everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was definitely NOT 
Avian Flu.
The cause of death appeared to be vehicular impacts. 

However, during the detailed analysis it was noted that varying 
colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws.
By analyzing these paint residues it was determined that 98% of the 
crows had been killed by impact with trucks, while only 2% were 
killed by an impact with a car. 

MTA then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if 
there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of truck 
kills versus car kills. 

The Ornithological Behaviorist very quickly concluded the cause: 
when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow in a 
nearby tree to warn of impending danger.
 
They discovered that  while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah",
not a single one  could shout "Truck."
