Man Feeding Birds at Ocean Beach, SF

On a typically cool, overcast morning at Ocean Beach, this man, armed with some scraps of food, is surrounded by hungry birds of many feathers looking for a handout.  Like a good shepherd, he knows his friends; and, his friends know him.

Although the small Pigeons and the large gull-like birds are comfortable with lots of people around, the Ravens are a bit shy.  A dark, gray morning sees fewer people and more birds.  Such a time is a good time to get close to the birds.

The famous Cliff House is seen in the background.
