RE­SEARCHERS for the WA Na­ture Author­ity found over 200 dead crows near the Great North­ern High­way 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, con­firmed the prob­lem was def­i­nitely NOT Avian Flu.

The cause of death ap­peared to be ve­hic­u­lar im­pacts.

How­ever, af­ter anal­y­sis it was de­ter­mined that 98 per cent of the crows had been killed by im­pact with trucks, while only two per cent were killed by an im­pact with a car.

An Or­nitho­log­i­cal Be­haviourist was called to de­ter­mine if there was a cause for the dis­pro­por­tion­ate per­cent­ages of truck kills ver­sus car kills.

The Or­nitho­log­i­cal Be­haviourist very quickly con­cluded the cause: when crows eat road­kill, they al­ways have a look­out 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”.
