Things spotted on the lunch walk

I noticed that the LA Times has a column one article about the Eaton collection of sf at UC Riverside.

The Loyola Building shelters a lot of pigeons despite the efforts of the maintenance crew to put razorwire on the ledge. The birds pick their way carefully through the wire and find little spots to inhabit. Today I noticed something new. The ledge now sports a big fake owl statue. Since the owl does not sport razorwire, a pigeon was standing on its head.
