There’s no need to be afraid of crows! These smart birds do us a service every day. You may notice crows hanging out on the side of the road on your drive to school. As you’re working hard on your multiplication tables, crows get to work too — cleaning up our roads. These birds will happily eat roadkill, and while it’s a bit of a gross task to even think about, wouldn’t it be worse if the carrion (dead animal) were left on the road to rot?
