Common name for the largest birds in the order PASSERIFORMES, family Corvidae. These omnivorous black birds comprise most of the species in the genus Corvus, along with ravens and jackdaws (which are often also referred to as crows).
A group of islands in Melanesia constituting a French overseas territory. The group includes New Caledonia (the main island), Ile des Pins, Loyalty Island, and several other islet groups. The capital is Noumea. It was discovered by Captain Cook in 1774 and visited by various navigators, explorers, and traders from 1792 to 1840. Occupied by the French in 1853, it was set up as a penal colony 1864-94. In 1946 it was made a French overseas territory. It was named by Captain Cook with the 5th and 6th century A.D. Latin name for Scotland, Caledonia. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p830 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p375)

Transitive responding in hooded crows requires linearly ordered stimuli. (1/117)

Eight crows were taught to discriminate overlapping pairs of visual stimuli (A+ B-, B+ C-, C+ D-, and D+ E-). For 4 birds, the stimuli were colored cards with a circle of the same color on the reverse side whose diameter decreased from A to E (ordered feedback group). These circles were made available for comparison to potentially help the crows order the stimuli along a physical dimension. For the other 4 birds, the circles corresponding to the colored cards had the same diameter (constant feedback group). In later testing, a novel choice pair (BD) was presented. Reinforcement history involving stimuli B and D was controlled so that the reinforcement/nonreinforcement ratios for the latter would be greater than for the former. If, during the BD test, the crows chose between stimuli according to these reinforcement/nonreinforcement ratios, then they should prefer D; if they chose according to the diameter of the feedback stimuli, then they should prefer B. In the ordered feedback group, the crows strongly preferred B over D; in the constant feedback group, the crows' choice did not differ significantly from chance. These results, plus simulations using associative models, suggest that the orderability of the postchoice feedback stimuli is important for crows' transitive responding.  (+info)

Lateralization of tool use in New Caledonian crows (Corvus moneduloides). (2/117)

We studied laterality of tool use in 10 captive New Caledonian (NC) crows (Corvus moneduloides). All subjects showed near-exclusive individual laterality, but there was no overall bias in either direction (five were left-lateralized and five were right-lateralized). This is consistent with results in non-human primates, which show strong individual lateralization for tool use (but not for other activities), and also with observations of four wild NC crows by Rutledge & Hunt. Jointly, these results contrast with observations that the crows have a population-level bias for manufacturing tools from the left edges of Pandanus sp. leaves, and suggest that the manufacture and use of tools in this species may have different neural underpinnings.  (+info)

Intestinal microflora in 45 crows in Ueno Zoo and the in vitro susceptibilities of 29 Escherichia coli isolates to 14 antimicrobial agents. (3/117)

Microorganisms from 45 jungle crows (Corvus macrorhynchos) captured from July to December 2002 at Ueno Zoo, Tokyo were identified as Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Klebsiella oxytoca, Enterobacter aerogenes, Enterobacter cloacae, Enterobacter agglomerans, Pseudomonas maltophila, Staphylococcus spp., Micrococcus spp., and Streptococcus spp. E. coli showed the highest rate of isolation (21.6%). In an in vitro susceptibility test for 29 isolates of E. coli to 14 antimicrobial agents, all the isolates were resistant to penicillin G, vancomycin, erythromycin, lincomycin, bicozamycin, sulfadimethoxine, and olaquindox. Several isolates of them were also resistant to tetracycline, oxytetracycline, streptomycin, chloramphenicol, and ampicillin. Twenty-nine isolates were divided into 19 serogroups and the most frequently identified serogroups were O8, O114 and O144, which showed the same multidrug-resistant patterns.  (+info)

Differential virulence of West Nile strains for American crows. (4/117)

Crow deaths were observed after West Nile virus (WNV) was introduced into North America, and this phenomenon has subsequently been used to monitor the spread of the virus. To investigate potential differences in the crow virulence of different WNV strains, American Crows were inoculated with Old World strains of WNV from Kenya and Australia (Kunjin) and a North American (NY99) WNV genotype. Infection of crows with NY99 genotype resulted in high serum viremia levels and death; the Kenyan and Kunjin genotypes elicited low viremia levels and minimal deaths but resulted in the generation of neutralizing antibodies capable of providing 100% protection from infection with the NY99 strain. These results suggest that genetic alterations in NY99 WNV are responsible for the crow-virulent phenotype and that increased replication of this strain in crows could spread WNV in North America.  (+info)

Ravens, Corvus corax, differentiate between knowledgeable and ignorant competitors. (5/117)

Human social behaviour is influenced by attributing mental states to others. It is debated whether and to what extent such skills might occur in non-human animals. We here test for the possibility of ravens attributing knowledge about the location of food to potential competitors. In our experiments, we capitalize on the mutually antagonistic interactions that occur in these birds between those individuals that store food versus those that try to pilfer these caches. Since ravens' pilfer success depends on memory of observed caches, we manipulated the view of birds at caching, thereby designing competitors who were either knowledgeable or ignorant of cache location and then tested the responses of both storers and pilferers to those competitors at recovery. We show that ravens modify their cache protection and pilfer tactics not simply in response to the immediate behaviour of competitors, but also in relation to whether or not they previously had the opportunity of observing caching. Our results suggest that the birds not only recall whom they had seen during caching, but also know that obstacles can obstruct the view of others and that this affects pilfering.  (+info)

Induction of cytochrome P450 1A5 mRNA, protein and enzymatic activities by dioxin-like compounds, and congener-specific metabolism and sequestration in the liver of wild jungle crow (Corvus macrorhynchos) from Tokyo, Japan. (6/117)

This study presents concentrations of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), dibenzofurans (PCDFs), and dioxin-like coplanar PCBs (Co-PCBs) in the liver and breast muscle of jungle crows (JCs; Corvus macrorhynchos) collected from Tokyo, Japan. 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin toxic equivalents (TEQs) derived by WHO bird-TEF were in the range of 23 to 280 pg/g (lipid) in the liver, which are lower or comparable to the lowest-observed-effect-level of CYP induction in chicken, and 5.6-78 pg/g (lipid) in the pectoral muscle. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 1A-, 2B-, 2C-, and 3A-like proteins were detected using anti-rat CYP polyclonal antibodies in hepatic microsomal fractions. Significant (p < 0.05) positive correlations between hepatic TEQs and CYP1A or CYP3A-like protein expression levels were noticed, implying induction of these CYP isozymes by TEQs. On the other hand, there was no significant positive correlation between muscle TEQ and any one of analyzed CYP isozyme expression levels. CYP1A- and CYP3A-like protein expression levels represented better correlations with pentoxy- and benzyloxyresorufin-O-dealkylase activities rather than methoxy- and ethoxyresorufin-O-dealkylase activities, indicating unique catalytic functions of these CYPs in JCs. Furthermore, we succeeded in isolating CYP1A5 cDNA from the liver of JC, having an open reading frame of 531 amino acid residues with a predicted molecular mass of 60.3 kDa. JC CYP1A5 mRNA expression measured by real-time RT-PCR had a significant positive correlation with hepatic TEQs, suggesting induction of CYP1A5 at the transcriptional level. Ratios of several Co-PCB congeners to CB-169 in the liver of JCs revealed significant negative correlations with CYP1A protein or CYP1A5 mRNA expression levels, implying metabolism of these congeners by the induced CYP1A. The liver/breast muscle concentration (L/M) ratios of PCDDs/DFs and CB-169 increased with an increase in hepatic CYP1A protein or CYP1A5 mRNA expression levels, suggesting congener-specific hepatic sequestrations by the induced CYP1A. The present study provides insights into the propensity of CYP1A induction to the exposure of dioxin-like chemicals, and unique metabolic and sequestration capacities of CYP1A in JC.  (+info)

Dead crow density and West Nile virus monitoring, New York. (7/117)

New York State used the health commerce system to monitor the number of West Nile virus (WNV) human disease cases and the density of dead crows. In each year from 2001 to 2003 and for the 3 years combined, persons living in New York counties (excluding New York City) with elevated weekly dead crow densities (above a threshold value of 0.1 dead crows per square mile) had higher risk (2.0-8.6 times) for disease caused by WNV within the next 2 weeks than residents of counties reporting fewer dead crows per square mile. This type of index can offer a real-time, relatively inexpensive window into viral activity in time for prevention and control. Changes in reporting, bird populations, and immunity may require that thresholds other than 0.1 be used in later years or in other areas.  (+info)

Protective behavior and West Nile virus risk. (8/117)

We conducted a cross-sectional, household survey in Oakville, Ontario, where an outbreak of West Nile virus (WNV) in 2002 led to an unprecedented number of cases of meningitis and encephalitis. Practicing > or =2 personal protective behavior traits reduced the risk for WNV infection by half.  (+info)

In New Caledonia, an island off the eastern coast of Australia, a crow is hunting for beetle grubs. The larvae are hidden within a decaying tree trunk, which might seem like an impregnable fortress. But the New Caledonian crow is smarter than the average bird. It uses a stick to probe the tunnels where the grubs are sheltered. The grubs bite at intruders with powerful jaws but here, that defensive reflex seals their fate; when they latch onto the stick, the crow pulls them out.. This technique is not easy. Birds need a lot of practice to pull it off and even veterans can spend a lot of time fishing out a single grub. The insects are fat, juicy and nutritious but do they really warrant the energy spent on extracting them? The answer is a resounding yes, according to Christian Rutz from the University of Oxford. By analysing feather and blood samples from individual crows, he found that grubs are so nutritious that just a few can satisfy a crow for a day.. The New Caledonian crow is one of the ...

Crow T. Robot is a fictional character from the American science fiction comedy television series Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K). Crow is a robot, who, along with others, ridicules poor-quality B movies. According to the MST3K storyline, Crow - like his fellow robots Tom Servo, Gypsy, and Cambot - was built by Joel Robinson, who created them to help him withstand the torment of watching bad movies on the Satellite of Love. On the Satellite, Crow was forced with the rest of the crew to watch horrible B-movies sent by mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester and his assistants. In episode 814, Riding with Death, Crow describes himself as being made from molybdenum. Crows middle initial stands for The. In episode #K19: Hangar 18, Joel stated that Crow was an acronym for Cybernetic Remotely Operated Woman, giving Crow a brief identity crisis until Joel revealed he built Crow specifically to play this joke on him. Crow is also sometimes called Art, primarily by late-series antagonist ...
To better understand the potential environmental health risk presented by West Nile virus (WNV)-contaminated feces, we quantified the amount of WNV present in the feces of experimentally infected American crows (Corvus brachyrhynchos) and fish crows (Corvus ossifragus). Peak fecal titers ranged from 103.5 to 108.8 plaque-forming units (PFU)/g for 10 American crows and from 102.3 to 106.4 PFU/g for 10 fish crows. The presence of infectious WNV in bird feces indicates a potential for direct transmission of WNV. Thus, handlers of sick or dead birds should take appropriate precautions to avoid exposure to fecal material.
A dipstick immunochromatographic assay used for West Nile virus (WNV) detection in mosquitoes was investigated for application to testing of fecal, saliva, and tissue samples from dead American Crows (Corvus brachyrhynchos). Results suggest that VecTest may be an efficient method for WNV detection in field-collected, dead American Crows, although confirmation of results and further investigation are warranted.

SYNOPSIS:. Some time ago, Ashe Corven and his son Danny were killed when they stumbled across a pack of drug dealers murdering a fellow dealer. The dealers work for Los Angeles drug kingpin Judah Earl. Local tattoo artist Sarah, who has great knowledge of the crow legend because of what happened with her late friend Eric Draven, has been having dreams about Ashe and Danny. One night when a crow leads her to the scene of the murders of Ashe and Danny, Ashe appears before her. The crow has resurrected Ashe, so Ashe can go after Judah and his right hand man Curve. With the guidance of the crow, Ashe starts killing off Judahs men one by one, on his way to Judah.. REVIEW:. The Crow series of films has had a history indeed. Though between the 4 films made, its only the first 2 that left any lasting impression upon me. The first as we know was a true classic that ended in the real tragedy of Brandon Lee who was shot by accident in a gun that supposed to be all blanks.. When the Crow hit, it was an ...

Corvids, members of the Corvidae family, range in length from 7.4 inches (19 centimeters) in Humes ground jay to the northern raven, which is 22.62 to 26.91 inches (58 to 69 centimeters) long. Humes ground jays weigh 1.47 to 1.61 ounces (42 to 46 grams). Northern ravens range from 2.02 to 3.43 pounds (.92 to 1.6 kilograms).. The Corvus genus of crows includes the crow, raven, jackdaw, and rook. These birds have shiny black plumage, feathers, and harsh calls. Jays are the colorful members of this family. The Eurasian jay and blue jay have blue and white feathers. Magpies are related to jays and plumage (feather) color is often described in the names of these birds, like the green magpie.. Corvids have strong bills. Most birds have black or dark bills, and feathers or whisker-like bristles cover the nostrils of many birds. Members of this family have large feet with strong toes. Birds use their toes to hold onto prey, the food that they hunt.. Corvids have long tails and rounded wings. Wing ...
The location and density of nests of the hooded vulture ( Necrosyrtes monacus ) and the pied crow ( Corvus albus ) were systematically investigated on the campus of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi, Ghana, from December, 2004 to April, 2005. Trees with crow and vulture nests were identified, and the positions of nests above ground (nest height) determined in three sites on the campus categorized as developed, undeveloped (protected) and undeveloped (unprotected). Canopy cover (above and at nest level) were visually estimated. In all, one hundred and two (102) nests were recorded of which 35 were inhabited by crows and 67 by vultures. Crow and vulture nest densities were found to be 2.73 km-2 and 5.23 km-2, respectively. Mean nest height for crow was 18m (S.D. 5.9) and that for vulture was 17m (S.D. 4.9). Eighty-nine per cent (89%) of all nests were found in the developed areas of the KNUST campus, a situation which can be attributable to availability of food
While most people like birds, some are totally ga-ga over them, while others downright fear them. When it comes to the corvids, though - birds informally known as members of the crow family - it seems its an either/or situation: either people hate them because they are cruel, mean, vicious birds, or they are intrigued by them because they are clever, intelligent, and ingenious. Somewhere in the mix, the truth lies.. Here in the Adirondacks we are lucky to have four species of corvids: ravens, crows, blue jays and gray jays. A fifth species, the fish crow, is listed as rare in the Lake Champlain Basin, so we can consider it an Adirondack possibility, but one exhibiting low probability. A more southern species, it wouldnt surprise me at all if the fish crow became a more frequent visitor to our region, along with vultures and cardinals, as our climate continues to change.. I will put it right out there up front that I happen to fall into the category of those who think the ...
The Crow wore clothing distinguished by gender. Women wore dresses made of deer and buffalo hide, decorated with elk teeth or shells. They covered their legs with leggings during winter and their feet with moccasins. Crow women wore their hair in two braids. Male clothing usually consisted of a shirt, trimmed leggings with a belt, a long breechcloth, and moccasins. Robes made from the furred hide of a bison were often worn in winter. Leggings were either made of animal hide which the Crow made for themselves or made of wool which were highly valued trade items made specifically for Indians in Europe. Their hair was worn long, in some cases reaching the ground.[90] The Crow are famous for often wearing their hair in a pompadour which was often coloured white with paint. Crow men were notable for wearing two hair pipes made from beads on both sides of their hair. Men often wore their hair in two braids wrapped in the fur of beavers or otters. Bear grease was used to give shine to hair. Stuffed ...

The common raven (Corvus corax) is a member of a family of birds known as the Corvidae, which includes jays, crows, and magpies. The raven is found throughout most of the Northern Hemisphere in many types of habitats. The raven is a permanent resident in Alaska, nesting from the Seward Peninsula and the Brooks Range throughout the mainland, south to Kodiak Island, throughout the Aleutian Chain and along the coast and mountains of Southeast Alaska. General description: The raven is the largest species of songbird and largest all-black bird in the world. In Alaska, the raven can only be confused with a hawk or crow. Ravens have large, stout bills, shaggy throat feathers, and wedge-shaped tails, visible best when in flight. Ravens are excellent fliers, engaging in aerial acrobatics and sometimes soaring to great heights. Flight is often an alternation of wing flapping and gliding and is deceptively fast, as ravens move quickly with seemingly slow wing beats. There is no mistaking the raucous call ...

Nest predation is a major cause of reproductive failure in birds, but predator identity often remains unknown. Additionally, although corvids are considered major nest predators in farmland landscapes, whether breeders or floaters are involved remains contentious. In this study, we aimed to identify nest predators using artificial nests, and test whether territorial or non-breeders carrion crow (Corvus corone) and Eurasian magpie (Pica pica) were most likely involved. We set up an experiment with artificial ground nests (n = 1429) in farmland landscapes of western France, and assessed how different combinations of egg size and egg material (small plasticine egg, large plasticine egg, quail and natural hen eggs) might influence predation rates and predator species involved. Nest predators were identified using remotely triggered cameras and marks left in plasticine eggs. Corvids were by far the predators most involved (almost 80% of all predation events), independent of egg type. Carrion crows alone were

I woke at 4:30 and took a stroll around the grounds near the Hotel to start my birding. Immediately, weird noises came from everywhere. The first bird I identified was a BROWN-EARED BULBUL which was perched on a telephone wire. Its varied squeaky call reminded a bit of the Golden-crowned Flycatcher of South America. I soon realized that the only way that I would keep these sounds organized in my mind was to initially equate the calls to species that I was familiar with regardless of how much of a stretch it really was. EURASIAN TREE SPARROWs were common as were JUNGLE CROWs which flew over singly and in groups. The size and shape of the bill easily separated this species from the Carrion Crow. A flyover wagtail was probably a BLACK-BACKED WAGTAIL. A call resembling the quality of a neotropical wren played hard to get but eventually revealed itself to be a JAPANESE BUSH WARBLER. At the time, I did not realize that the only place where Japanese Bush Warblers did not occur in Japan was out in the ...
Local spread between farms with food-producing animals is an important factor in the prevalence of gastrointestinal zoonotic pathogens in Sweden. A possible route of local transmission is wild birds like gulls and corvids (e.g. crows, jackdaws), that often forage in environments that can be contaminated by zoonotic bacteria like on pastures and fertilized land as well as in refuse heaps.. In addition to to possibly spreading disease between animals, wild birds can also serve as carriers of zoonotic diseases to humans. For instance, jackdaws frequently forage in the countryside by day and gather in cities at night. Many gulls and corvids seek out human settlements to find food, often congregating in areas like outdoor restaurant areas, rest stops and other places where people eat.. In this study we will investigate the prevalence of the major zoonotic gastrointestinal pathogens EHEC, Salmonella, Campylobacter and Yersinia among Swedish corvids and gulls in rural and periurban areas. This will ...

According to the story: Crow season would take place from early February to mid-April and early August to late September in far northern Maine. The proposed season in the rest of the state would take place from late January to late March and early August to late September.. I was most disturbed at the line, There would be no daily bag limit.. Im convinced Maines state motto must be changed to Anthropocentric to the Core. Humans seem to think they are better than all the gazillions of other Earth species trying to cohabitate and co-exist.. Humans are merely a microcosm of the greater macrocosm, no better or no worse than every other living thing (microcosm). Predatoritis (indiscriminately killing off all other predators) is a disease, and Maine is on its way to suffocating from it.. A few decades ago a Wampanoag medicine man gave me the name White Crow, so you know how I feel about this crow hunt. I am 100 percent against it.. Please send your comments to Becky Orff, Inland ...

Crows are members of the Corvidae group and many experts believe they may be smarter than apes. Crows are able to count as well as reason in ways no ape is capable of. Their thought processes have shown to be at least as complex as apes. An Auckland University (New Zealand) study conducted by scientists found that crows not only can use reason to solve a complex problem, but are able to solve similar problems using their past experiences. Some studies with apes showed they were not able to use their knowledge with other problems. It may be that crows have reached a level of reasoning similar to that of humans. Scientists at Cambridge University in England tested the crows reasoning ability. They placed a tube with a small amount of water near their subjects. The scientists observed the crows dropping stones in the water to raise its level so that they could drink. Studies have also shown that other members of the Corvidae family can plan ahead. Ravens, part of the Corvidae family, have been ...
Yusei stared blankly at the TV Martha had set up for him. Crow wasnt sure why Martha had set up the TV in the first place. Yusei wasnt actually watching it. He opened his eyes in the morning and closed them at night to go to sleep, but he didnt move otherwise. He hadnt moved more than that in a week. After the first couple days, Crow had been forced to start feeding him, because he wouldnt do it himself.. It was as though Yuseis soul had been taken away, leaving only a hollow shell behind. Crow was sure he didnt even realize there were other people around.. Crow sat down on the bed beside him and reached out to touch his cheek. Yuseis skin was cool, as though he were dead. But he was breathing, and he had a pulse every time Crow checked for one.. Yusei... Crow took his hand away. Where was he? Why wouldnt he wake up?. Yusei, Kiryu and the other Dark Signers are still out there. You cant give up now.. Nothing. Not even a change in breathing to show hed heard. Crow clenched his ...
Human-altered landscapes have provided resource subsidies for common ravens (Corvus corax) resulting in a substantial increase in raven abundance and distribution throughout the United States and Canada in the past 25 years. Ravens are effective predators of eggs and young of ground-nesting birds. During 2002-2005, we tested whether chicken egg baits treated with CPTH (3-chloro-p-toluidine hydrochloride) could be used to manage raven numbers in an area where raven depredation was impacting sharp-tailed grouse (Tympanuchus phasianellus columbianus) and greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) populations in Nevada. We performed multiple raven surveys at a treatment site and 3 control sites and used videography to identify predators and estimate egg bait consumption. We detected reductions in raven abundances over time at the treatment site during all years of this study and did not detect reductions in raven abundances at control sites. Videographic observations of egg consumption indicated that

The bird sits tense, still, with feathers flat on the body and head. In response to crow and sparrowhawk, whether they are flying or just nearby. Slow, well spaced and high-pitched with open beak (above). Many other birds have a similar thin, high pitched alarm call for threats from aerial predators since the features of this sound makes the calling bird harder to locate, therefore the bird calling does not endangering itself. It has also been called hawk alarm, but it is also uttered in response to crows flying overhead or when the nest is threatened. Nestlings react to this call by becoming quiet and still. In experiments using magpie dummies, the parents uttered this call when the dummy was 6-7 m from the nest, while they used the mobbing call when the dummy was very close to the nest. Interestingly, there appear to be differences between urban and rural blackbirds use of this call, as D.W. Snow reported that woodland birds use this call also to humans (the one in the photo above is a ...

American bald eagle (315-543) was brought to CROW the first time on March 17, 2015 after being found on railroad tracks in North Fort Myers suffering from a broken clavicle on his left wing. After 3 months of recovery and rehabilitation, Ozzie was released on June 17, 2015 at the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam.. Ozzie was brought to CROW a second time on September 27, 2015 after he was found weak and injured in a North Fort Myers backyard most likely from a fight with another bald eagle. He arrived in critical condition, unable to stand and fighting a bacterial blood infection. Unfortunately, on September 29, 2015 Ozzie passed away as a result of his injuries. View Patient Detail ...
Despite being separated by over 7,000 miles, two species of crows that are distinct in appearance and size shed only the species C. jejuni. This was confirmed by using two well-established PCR protocols that targeted different genes. C. jejuni was isolated almost at the same frequency from Kolkata samples (69%) as from samples from the greater Seattle area (61%). Other studies have reported the presence of campylobacters in 21 to 68% of fecal samples from crows (10, 12), and our results are in agreement with those, although Weis et al. also found Campylobacter coli and C. lari isolates, based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis (10).. The most unexpected result was that of the CDT gene cluster. In all of the 74 isolates in which the cluster was detected, irrespective of whether their origin was in the United States or Eastern India, PCR amplicons of the same size were obtained, at approximately 1,350 bp instead of the full-length 2,100 bp found in the wild type. The sequencing of 22 ...

Black soldiers who were drafted for WWI also faced discrimination. The Armed services were segregated until after WW II. The Wilson administration, which was fighting to Make the World Safe for Democracy in Europe, refused to integrate our own armed services. Only 50,000 of the 370,000 black soldiers inducted were sent to Europe and hardly any of them saw combat duty. Most were relegated to supply and labor details. (Lawson, Jim Crows Counterculture: The Blues and Black Southerners, pp. 117-119.). In August, 1917 in Houston, Texas, black soldiers, who objected to local Jim Crow practices, were harassed by whites, sparking a riot. White police officers used armed force. Seventeen people died, including 11 civilians, four police officers, and two black soldiers. Despite the fact that the reporting military officer on the scene blamed the riot on the racism of the local whites and the unjust treatment of the Houston Police Department, 13 black soldiers were executed for mutiny. (Id.). More ...
Researchers recently studied whether eating highly processed junk food had an effect on wildlife. Specifically, the researchers tested whether eating McDonalds cheeseburgers had any effects on crows. The short answer is: Yes. Crows who had McDonalds cheeseburgers left near their nests had an increase in their blood cholesterol levels.
ALL told, the two of us knew James F. Crow for 105 years. Rayla Greenberg Temin received her Ph.D. in genetics in 1963 with Jim as her major professor. After receiving her degree, Rayla remained in Jims lab for many years as a research scientist working in collaboration with Jim. In 1978 she became a member of the genetics faculty. She recently retired and continues to be active in genetics as an emerita professor. Millard Susman joined the genetics faculty in 1962 and is still affiliated with genetics as an emeritus professor. Our assignment is to describe Jim as colleague, teacher, mentor, and friend, and our challenge is to do that without straining the credulity of our readers. We have all known extraordinary people whose originality, productivity, and influence were many standard deviations above the mean but who may have had foibles and incivilities that seemed somehow to counterbalance their inordinate strengths. Not Jim Crow. He was one of those exceptions that we are taught to ...
One important element of complex and flexible tool use, particularly where tool manufacture is involved, is the ability to select or manufacture appropriate tools anticipating the needs of any given task-an ability that has been rarely tested in non-primates. We examine aspects of this ability in New Caledonian crows-a species known to be extraordinary tool users and manufacturers. In a 2002 study, Chappell and Kacelnik showed that these crows were able to select a tool of the appropriate length for a task among a set of different lengths, and in 2002, Weir, Chappell and Kacelnik showed that New Caledonian crows were able to shape unfamiliar materials to create a usable tool for a specific task. Here we examine their handling of tool diameter. In experiment 1, we show that when facing three loose sticks that were usable as tools, they preferred the thinnest one. When the three sticks were presented so that one was loose and the other two in a bundle, they only disassembled the bundle when their
In Australian Aboriginal mythology, Crow is a trickster, culture hero, and ancestral being. Legends relating to Crow have been observed in various Aboriginal language groups and cultures across Australia; these commonly include stories relating to Crows role in the theft of fire, the origin of death, and the killing of Eagles son.. Crows are mentioned often in Buddhism, especially Tibetan disciplines. The Dharmapala (protector of the Dharma) Mahakala is represented by a crow in one of his physical/earthly forms.[citation needed]. In the Chaldean myth, the Epic of Gilgamesh, Utnapishtim releases a dove and raven to find land; however, the dove merely circles and returns. Only then does Utnapishtim send forth the raven, which does not return, and Utnapishtim concludes the raven has found land.[55]. In Chinese mythology, the world originally had 10 suns either spiritually embodied as 10 crows and/or carried by 10 crows; when all 10 decided to rise at once, the effect was devastating to crops, so ...
Meet the hawk Ive named Trouble. And believe me when I say the name fits. This is the youngster who not only takes no crap from anyone, not even the crows, but this predator dishes out all manner of mayhem.. When it makes an appearance and the crows spot it, of course the corvids mob the accipiter as one might expect. But that only lasts for a minute or two at best. It takes that long for Trouble to grow weary of the game and turn the tables on the crows. It then becomes the hawk mobbing the mob.. Trouble chases the crows, pestering and molesting them, until finally the birds escape to a nearby tree. Ah, but the hawk isnt finished yet. This is certainly a case of dont dish out what youre not willing to take.. The hawk follows the crows into the trees, then the fun begins. Trouble bounces from limb to limb trying to get close to the crows. An avian shuffle takes place as the crows move about trying to avoid the hassle. The hawk naturally moves on to the next nearest crow. The cacophony of ...
West Nile (WN) virus, a mosquito-transmitted virus native to Africa, Asia, and Europe, was isolated from two species of mosquitoes, Culex pipiens and Aedes vexans, and from brain tissues of 28 American crows, Corvus brachyrhynchos, and one Coopers hawk, Accipiter cooperii, in Connecticut. A portion of the genome of virus isolates from four different hosts was sequenced and analyzed by comparative phylogenetic analysis. Our isolates from Connecticut were similar to one another and most closely related to two WN isolates from Romania (2.8 and 3.6 percent difference). If established in North America, WN virus will likely have severe effects on human health and on the health of populations of birds. ...
When I found this crow on the ground, I thought immediately of the dreaded West Nile Virus. Crows are the most prevalent carriers. The link underlined above has a phone number for whom to contact if you find a crow or other bird that has died without explanation. When I picked the crow up (I was wearing gloves, but not my bathrobe), I saw right away that it had been shot. Under its wing was a bullet hole. Is was not stiff or buggy, so I suspected it had been shot in the air then plummeted unceremoniously through the trees to its death. It seemed a tragic ending for the magnificent flyer that irritated its neighbor just one too many times. American crows are the birds most susceptible to West Nile Virus. WNV causes neurolgical symptoms and encephalitis. It can be transmitted to humans from the birds by mosquitos, but NOT from the birds directly. Holster your weapon, please ...

I walked out of the building at one point and the noise from overhead was pretty loud. I could hear the distinct cawing of the crows- loud and raucous and the anxious twittering of a smaller bird. So my footsteps walked past my car to the side of the building and I found myself standing under the canopy of the trees watching the drama above. Three crows were actively irritating a pair of robins who were desperately trying to protect their nest and their young. I watched as one or two of the crows would lure both of the parents away from the nest and then the last crow would nip in and steal one of the robin fledglings and fly away as quickly as possible. The parents would return desperate and full of anxiety and then the crows would begin when another would show up. Slowly but surely, they were emptying the nest. I stood there, wishing I could change something and knowing that I could do nothing, when the last fledgling was captured and the crow turned in midair and flew in my direction. I must ...

A recent publication (1) records the transmission of yellow fever to laboratory animals by the bite and by the injection of jungle mosquitoes which had acquired the infection in their native habitats. The present paper describes the methods used for capturing, transporting, classifying, and feeding the mosquitoes which were used in the experiments. The technique was developed and put into practice during an epidemic of jungle yellow fever in the vicinity of Maracajú, Mato Grosso, during the first six months of 1937. It was again used during the epidemic in the State of Rio de Janeiro, in the first half of 1938. The prime objective was to obtain yellow fever infection in laboratory animals by the bite of jungle mosquitoes within twenty-four hours after their capture. Captures were made only in jungle areas in which humans were known to have contracted yellow fever.

African American women have played significant roles in the ongoing straggle for freedom and equality, but relatively little is known about many of these leaders and activists.Most accounts of civil rights activism focus on male leaders and the organizations they led, leaving a dearth of information about the countless black women who were the backbone of the struggle in communities across the country. At the local level women helped mold and shape the direction the movement would take. Lulu B. White was one of those women leaders in the civil rights movement in Texas.Executive secretary of the Houston branch of the NAACP and state director of branches, White was a significant force in the struggle against Jim Crow during the 1940s and 1950s. She was at the helm of the Houston chapter when the Supreme Court struck down the white primary in Smith v. Allwright, and she led the fight to get more blacks elected to public office, to gain economic parity for African Americans, and to integrate the University
An excellent example of this are the annual outbreaks of ranavirus that have occurred within Florida Box Turtle populations in southwest Florida over the past few years. Ranaviruses have been called cold-blooded killers because they cause illness and death in cold-blooded wildlife such as fish, amphibians, and reptiles. This emerging viral disease has rarely been documented in Florida reptiles, possibly because no one knowledgeable about the disease has been looking. When the first turtle with characteristic clinical signs, such as swollen eyelids, plaques in the mouth, and nasal discharge was admitted to CROW in 2013, our veterinarians were highly suspicious. State wildlife veterinarians were immediately alerted and samples were submitted to the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study (SCWDS), where the diagnosis was confirmed. Since then, we have documented outbreaks of ranavirus in Lee County box turtles every winter. Ranavirus typically exists at low prevalence (less than 5 percent ...
Scraping 75 tons of rock at a time, a drag line shovel removes overburden from a coal seam to be mined at the Spring Creek Mine, a Cloud Peak Energy property in southern Montana, Friday, May 17, 2013. Around the giant shovel, the boom of which is 320 feet long, are some of the largest bulldozers made. Pending new ports for shipment to Asia through either the U.S. or Canada, Cloud Peak Energey hopes to open new high-grade coal mines on and near the Crow Reservation in southern Montana. The tribe is equally hopeful the new mines would bring long-awaited economic stability to the tribe. (Kevin Moloney for the New York Times)
Wild garlic or ramsoms are a pleasing sight in British woodlands, producing a haze of white flowers from April to June. The leaves are edible and add a garlic flavour to salads. However, their persistent bulbs and spreading habit make them a problem in most gardens. The less common but equally persistent crow garlic can also be a nuisance.

Features attributed to shearing and kolking are exposed in fluvial sediments of the Old Crow River. Folded laminations attributed to fluid shear occur in the upper portion of an 80 cm thick coset of predominantly type B ripple-drift cross-laminated silts. Neither liquefaction nor upward porewater seepage are considered to have been necessary prerequisites for folding. Rather, rapid sedimentation produced sediments weak enough to be folded by fluid shear. Kolking features consist of angular, undercut erosional scours in silty sand and laminated organic silty sands. A kolk is a form of macroturbulence consisting of an intermittent vortex capable of entraining debris which ordinary tractive and hydraulic lifting forces cannot entrain. Kolks have been associated with a steep energy gradient, a low suspended sediment concentration, and dunes. Kolks inferred here probably were not associated with dunes. A steep energy gradient is unlikely unless the kolks were associated with a sudden flood surge ...

Zoology-- Many animals common in other places are unknown in this parish, viz. frogs, toads, foxes, and partridges. One frog was thrown, last summer, on the quay, from the hold of a ship which brought potatoes from the mainland, and curiosity brought many to see the reptile stranger. Serpents, two feet long and one inch diameter, are frequently met with by herds, in the moors. They sting or bite the cattle, by which they swell, and sometimes die. The usual cure for this swelling, is water in which the preserved head of a serpent has been put, and which is given to the animal affected, and its whole body washed with it. When serpents are killed, their heads are chopped off and preserved for this purpose. The Linnaean second class of natural history, viz. Aves, is complete here. The six orders are found: Accipitres, or the falcon-kind; Picae, sea-pies; Anseres, Grallae, Gallinae, and Passeres. Eagles, falcons, and hawks are numerous; the raven and grey carrion crow are destructive to lambs and ...

MAKOYI-OPISTOKI (Crop Eared Wolf), Blood Indian warrior, the leader of the Fish Eaters band, and the head chief of the tribe; b. c. 1845 in what is now southern Alberta, son of Natos-api (Sun Old Man); m. Paynot-sinimatsaki (Coup in Sight), Sakoy-inamuhka (Took the Gun Last), Stamiksitsaki (Bull Gut Woman), and Nitohksini (One Bone); d. 14 April 1913 on the Blood Indian Reserve, Alta.. Crop Eared Wolf was born in the Many Children band, but in the 1850s, when both his parents died, he was adopted by Red Crow [Mékaisto*] and transferred to the Fish Eaters band. His sister had married Red Crow a few years earlier and had prevailed upon her husband to take the orphaned boy. Within a short time Crop Eared Wolf became the chiefs favourite child, receiving preference over his others. Both Red Crow and Crop Eared Wolf were of a similar nature - highly intelligent, fearless in battle, and astute in politics. They also looked alike, being fairly short and not handsome..

I never meant to dispute the idea that mutations accumulate with paternal age. However, the cases that Crow points to in the 1997 PNAS article appear to involve a few genes that are somehow quite special. In a 2003 comment in Science, Crow describes them as hot-spots occurring almost exclusively in males and rising steeply with age. Three genes--fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3, mutated in achondroplasia), FGFR2 (mutated in Aperts syndrome), and RET (mutated in multiple endocrine neoplasia)--are examples of the hot-spot class. In this class, genes carry mutations that are clustered at just one or two nucleotide sites. He then discusses at length the hypothesis that these specific mutations are selected in the male germ line, a hypothesis that Goriely et al. put right in the title of their article: Evidence for Selective Advantage of Pathogenic FGFR2 Mutations in the Male Germ Line. The title of Crows commentary was Theres Something Curious About Paternal-Age Effects ...

Last Spring, a dear and enormously talented friend of theirs, Brian Wertheim began to work with JUNGLE FIRES on their first record in Malibu, CA (To be released late Summer 2013). Neither Brian nor Kéren nor Manasseh had any idea what to expect of the new endeavor, but they soon learned that past the book cover were many, many dense pages to explore. While JUNGLE FIRES grew in their creativity and into their unique sound, the album process came to be one of the most exciting things they have ever done in their lives. The project then bounced to NYC, then to Boston, then to somewhere quiet in Pennsylvania, then back to Malibu, and finally, is in the process of being mixed in Brooklyn. They can hardly wait ...
