Australian Crow Research

The Government of Queensland found about 200 dead crows near Townsville  last autumn, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.
They hired a Bird Pathologist examine the remains of all the crows, and he  confirmed the test results showed it 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 then hired an Ornithological behaviorist to determine why
there was a disproportionate percentage for truck versus car kill.
The Ornithological behaviorist determined the cause in short order.
He concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always set-up a look-out
Crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger.
His study results and conclusion was that the look-out crow could warn the  other crows by saying “Cah”, but the crow could not say “Truck”!  🙂
