Bird Executes Huge Photobomb During Weather Forecast

Friday in San Francisco, the weather forecast was calling for highs in the mid-50s with a 100 percent chance of an epic photobomb.

The morning weather report started out in its usual fashion, with KTVU's Mark Tamayo setting the scene with a video feed overlooking San Francisco Bay. 

And then it happened, where out of nowhere, a giant beak dropped.

"Look at this," Tamayo said, as if it was even possible one could miss it. 

The bird proceeded to check out the camera, looking directly into it, giving viewers a rare treat.

"This is so cool," marveled one of the anchors in the studio.


But then, in a flash, it disappeared as quickly as it appeared.
