From local news in Maine

200 Dead Crows Found In Maine....

Researchers for the Maine Turnpike Authority found over 200 dead crows near Bangor, Maine recently, 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 to everyone's relief, he confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu.

However, he determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, and only 2% were killed by an impact with a car. Maine then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine the cause of the disproportionate percentages for truck kills versus car kills.

The Ornithological Behaviorist determined the cause in short order:

When crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow in a nearby tree, to warn of impending danger.
His conclusion was that, while all the lookout crows could say “Cah”, none could say “Truck”.
