Blame the birds.
An errant seagull knocked out electricity service to about 2,000 PG&E customers in Oakland on Tuesday, according to the Oakland Tribune.
It seems the bird flew into a set of wires near 4th and Franklin Streets at 6:45 a.m., the newspaper reported.
The gull was electrocuted and died when the bird's two wings made contact with two wires, turning the avian creature into a live circuit.
Power was restored to all but 122 customers by 9 a.m., with the switch to be flipped on the rest by Tuesday afternoon.
