Report on crow kills...

Report on Crow Kills

Well, it is not a pretty story....about 200 dead crows near Worcester, Mass and there was concern for 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 city then hired a 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 post 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."

Gotcha.

Yes you did! Before going full-time we were 30 year residents of Worcester County. Before I read the punch line I almost picked up the phone and called my son to ask him what the hell was going on up there.

Good one!!!
