The Government of Queensland found about 200 dead crows near Ipswich last
autumn, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.
They hired a Bird Pathologist to examine the remains of all the crows, and
the test results showed it was definitely NOT Avian Flu, to everyone’s
However, he determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with
trucks, and only 2% were killed by car impact. The government then hired an
Ornithological Behaviourist (Dale Caswell) to determine why there was a
disproportionate percentage for truck versus car kill.
The Ornithological Behaviourist determined the cause in short order. He
concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always set-up a look-out Crow
in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger.
His study results and conclusion was that the lookout crow could warn the
other crows by saying “Cah”, but the crow could not say “Truck.”

On a trip together, a Hindu, a rabbi and a lawyer stop at a farmhouse and
ask to stay the night.
There is a space for two, but one will have to sleep in the barn.
“I’ll go” the Hindu volunteers. A few minutes later, the lawyer and the
rabbi hear a knock.
“There is a cow in the barn,” the Hindu says. “A cow is sacred, and I can’t
sleep with a sacred beast.”
“No problem, I can do it,” the rabbi says, grabbing his pillow. But minutes
later, the rabbi knocks.
“There is a pig in the barn. It’s an unclean animal — my belief forbids me
to be near such a creature.”
With a tired sigh, the lawyer heads out. Almost immediately, there is a
third knock at the door.
The cow and the pig are at the door.
