In a detailed study of annual crow births in India, it was found that there was relatively no growth during the period $2002$ to $2004$ and a sudden spike from $2004$ to $2005$. In another unrelated study, it was found that the revenue from cracker sales ... birth rate. If cracker sale declines, crow birth will decline. Increased birth rate of crows will cause an increase in the sale of crackers.
