Oh Poop

Some residents parking just under the RecRoom-to-pool walkway have had the misfortune of suddenly finding their cars covered in seagull guano.

Seagulls are the birds most closely identified with the beach, so it’s no surprise they made their way over to Pacific Tower.

In order to discover the mystery of the miserable poop, our building superintendent, John McLean,  went up on the roof peered down into the top of our cell tower panels and sure enough - Pacific Tower has its very own seagull – a mother with a nest and at least one egg.  Apparently the closely-knit seagull family is circling our building in eager anticipation of the blessed event, and when you gotta go, you gotta go.

Once the chick is born, the birds will probably fly the coop. In the meantime, John is temporarily installing spikes at the top of the pool fence.  Until then, everyone walking in the upper garage is warned to wear a hat.
