I know that Torresisan Crows don't have the best reputation but this week
end we were bombed by one - maybe a new example of urban terrorism?

I and some friends were walking down a street the Fortitude Valley in
Brisbane when a crow sailed over our heads and dropped a small empty tin can
on us from about 20 meters height onto the pavement. It then sat on a roof
top, looking, to my mind, smug.

The can - 200g Greenseas Tuna and Chilli if you need the exact details - was
quite dry and looked as though it had been empty for days.

Has anyone any explanation as to what it might have been doing or and
examples of similar occurrences?
