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, it was confirmed that 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. The conclusion was that while all the lookout crows could say "Cah", none could say "Truck."

That, my friend, is the best piece of knowledge I will be passing out today.

  Claude the crow seems to be everywhere. First sighted him in Calgary, Alberta then somewhere in Massachusetts. Mr Crow has now taken up Australian citizenship so will probably be popping up on the Nullabor, Ayres Rock, the Harbour Bridge or St Kilda Road Melbourne. He has already made his acquaintence with some of my family and friends.   Thanks Jim 134.
