Just how smart are crows?

There is a new very important government study
on just how intelligent crows are.

The state of California found about 200 dead

crows on its highways, and there was concern

that they may have died from Avian Flu. They

had a Bird Pathologist examine the remains of

all the crows, and he confirmed the problem

was definitely NOT Avian Flu, to everyone's relief.

However, he determined that 98% of the crows

had been killed by impact with trucks, and only

2% were killed by car impact.

The State of California then hired an Ornithological

Behaviorist to determine the disproportionate

percentages for truck versus car kill. The

Ornithological Behaviorist determined the cause

in short order.

When crows eat road kill, they always set-up a

look-out Crow in a nearby tree to warn of

impending danger. His conclusion was that the

lookout crow could say "Cah," but he could not

say "Truck."

The version I heard, the crows were from the Northeastern part of the country. Thats' why they could only say "CAH!"
