The California D.O.T found over

200 dead crows on the highways 

recently, and there was concern

that they may have died from 

Avian Flu. A pathologist exmained

the birds, and to everyone*s relief,

it was not bird flu. The cause of 

death seem to be from vehicular

impact. However, during analysis

it was noted that various colors of

paint on the claws and beaks of 

the crows. Testing of these paints

found that 98% of the birds were 

killed by impact with motorbikes,

while the other 2% were impacted

by cars. The agency then hired an

Ornithological Behaviourist to 

determine why the percentage

difference between motorcycles

vs. cars. The conclusion was that

when crows eat road-kill, they 

always have a look out bird to 

warn of incoming danger. They 

discovered that while all the look

out birds could shout *Cah!* but

not a single one could shout *Bike!*
