The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) found over 200 dead crows on Highway 281 this past week, and there was concern that they may have died from the Coronavirus.
A veterinary epidemiologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was NOT Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The cause of death was actually from vehicular impacts. However, during analysis it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws. By analyzing these paint residues it was found that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, while only 2% were killed by cars.

TxDOT 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 quickly concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow to warn of danger.

They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah","Cah" not a single one could shout "Truck"!!!
Any political party that can't cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Joe Biden deserves to die a slow death.

Romans 12:16-21    Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all. If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all....Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

I know that this intended as a humourous piece, but crows typically are among the most intelligent of the avian population.  Seeing that many along a stretch of highway does seem a tad odd.  Generally crows when working on roadkill carrion generally avoid getting hit.

I can't remember ever hitting a crow.  Now Cardinals, Mockingbirds, and the others are different matter.

I remember during the last Avian flu outbreak seeing many crows dying, flying in circles, and acting strangely.  I wouldn't discount this story just yet. 
I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

They were stoned out of their beaks from eating fermented berries.

My Latino brothers and sisters kept getting fired from NASA.

Every time they said "LAUNCH", they'd go eat.
