Out of all the things I wasn’t expecting to see in downtown Oakland: a pair of black crowned night herons hanging out with the pigeons. They were so still I thought they were statues at first.
It just goes to show that nature isn’t always where we expect to find it. The herons stood around for a while, then squawked and stole a piece of bread from one of the pigeons. One of the two finally flew off and landed in a nearby tree.
Just another day in the city.
