A few questions re: The House Crow:

Why are these birds so contentious? Please explain?
I saw it last Monday and it was coming off a very bad second best in the
scavenger hunt to the 2 dozen plus Ravens that were also being fed by the
locals at Dee Why. So I can't see it taking over the world.
The other birds I saw in numbers at Dee Why were Common Myna and
Red-whiskered Bulbul. No one has mentioned them?
I have seen House Crow overseas and they seem to be not "reeking havoc" and
certainly not out numbering the other corvids.

What ship was it on?
Did anyone see the ship?
If not, how are we sure it was ship assisted?
What ships go to Dee Why?
If we didn't see the ship and we assume it was ship assisted, can we assume
the Red-legged crake also came on a ship? And the Grey-headed Lapwing (or
maybe a small boat as it was inland)
Did the Javan Pond Heron get to Darwin on one of the many Indonesian ships
not seen by customs?
If we believe in Noah and the ark, does that mean all species have been ship
assisted at some point?

It's on my list as it was there!
