    Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority found over 200 dead crows near Greater Boston 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, during the detailed analysis it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws.
    By analyzing these paint residues it was determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, while only 2% were
    killed by an impact with a car.

    MTA then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of truck kills
    versus car kills. He very quickly concluded the cause: When crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow in a nearby tree
    to warn of impending danger. They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah", not a single one could shout "Truck."

    We had a pet crow for awhile when I was a kid. He went feral eventually. Fascinating bird. Bad pest for farmers and gardeners.
    I thought that joke was great.

    That's a must read for me.
    Joe Crow was with us for a year and a few months. My brother would keep his bedroom window open for Joe to come in when he wanted. He even traveled from IL to MN for 3 months exploring the woods and water, riding on the pontoon boat, and sheltering in our one room cabin with us and 2 Great Danes at night. He would come when called, until he didn't. We all believe he just found a mate and murder (flock) of his kind and went his way.

    I'm pretty sure Tracy was laughing at the original joke, not your post Madmax. It is a very good joke. Your story was touching Madmax.

    Oops! Brokor's right; I was laughing at the original post.

    Your story is amazing.

    Here's what you need to know about me/my posts: If there are two ways to take anything that I say, always default to the one that's sing-songy in tone, is accompanied by a big smile, and is generally wearing a bow. [bateye].
