Re: Corvid Culture (was Outbeak Culture)

I worked in a fish-plant years and years ago and one day a crow followed a forklift into a big frozen storage room where it managed to survive for a couple of months.  It ate whatever it could peck away at and apparently stayed warm by roosting near a spot amongst a freezing equipment in a spot that was warm.  We tried everything to flush it out but it was impossible to evict. Then one day he/she followed the forklift out of the freezer. It was still in the fish plant but soon found its way to the main door and then things took a quick turn towards the surreal.  As usual there was a sizable contingent of crows and gulls roosting nearby waiting for an opportunity and all hell broke out when our crow flew outside and it was promptly attacked and torn to pieces by all the other crows who suddenly swarmed it.

The gulls seems as perplexed as us by the behaviour.
