Funny Joke Of The Day
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. In fact, 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 and checking traffic camera footage when they could, it was determined that 98 percent of the crows had been killed by impacts with trucks, while only 2 percent 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.
The ornithological behaviorist 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.”
