Crows do something really, really grim to their dead | IFLScience
We already know that crows display unusual behavior around corpses. Now, thanks to a new UW study, we also know they can be partial to a bit of necrophilia. Kaeli Swift, a crow researcher in the UW's School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, is quoted.

Why do crows copulate with corpses? | Live Science
Crows are highly social birds, and that bond continues even after death: Living crows often gather and caw loudly near the bodies of their fallen comrades. Some of them, on occasion, go a bit further than that: They have sex with the corpses. Kaeli Swift, a crow researcher at the UW, is quoted.
