    I went for a bike ride yesterday and noticed 3 or 4 crows up on the wires cawing to beat the band- they were looking down and at each other, I didn't see any food on the ground as I pedaled past.

    Today, I was coming back from a ride and I spotted a dead crow on the sidewalk just past where they were, and I remembered a documentary where researchers viewed crows doing the same thing when one dies.

    I decided to go back to look at the crow because it had some plastic tie wire caught up in it's feet.
    I wondered how a crow could get bound up like that.
    It looked a bit weird, and when I gave it a little push with my foot, I saw it was a fake crow that must have blown off the guy's nearby porch.
