Mark Tamayo wasn't expecting to have a feathery co-host for his 4 p.m. weather newscast Thursday afternoon.
It was a "typical afternoon" show segment, where the backdrop would be linked off to one of the station's live cameras around the bay. Tamayo says he's never quite sure which camera producers will stream from, but that day the view displayed a look at the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands.
And that's when a black bird's beak took over the show.
"I see the bird looking so curious and looking directly at the camera like it belonged there, and I guess it did," Tamayo recalls. "Obviously the bird had no idea it was on live news but it looked very confident and poised."
