Local Bird Refuses to Quit Smoking

Posted By on Thu, Aug 30, 2012 at 11:39 AM

So you think you've seen it all in San Francisco, but you really haven't seen anything until you've witnessed a local bird smoke a cigarette.

As you can see here, that nicotine patch isn't helping this local blue scrub jay kick his tobacco habit. A Bernal Heights neighbor snapped this photo shortly after the bird flew on his deck, "beaked up a cigarette" from the ashtray and flew to the rail to chillax while he had a smoke.

We can't really blame him. Where else is a bird to go in this city to have a smoke without Supervisor Eric Mar on his ass?
