Power outages last Friday, Linda Mar

 Blue Heron collision 

Pacifica Tribune/Jane Northrop, 11/18/14. "Bird hits PG&E equipment." 

"Two power outages Friday (11/14/14) at Rosita Drive and Capistrano Drive were both caused by a single bird who collided with some PG&E equipment, said Paul Moreno, PG&E spokesperson. The first outage affected 1,118 customers and the second outage affected 1,700 customers between 5:36 p.m. and 6:34 p.m."
