DeadBird was a relatively well-known feral rock pigeon who died circa 2004. Much is not known about DeadBird, including its gender, and it reached local fame posthumously after it dangled from the Bay Bridge overpass above Second Street for as long as three years, according to some reports. DeadBird was removed from its position in late March or early April of 2007 with the demolition of the old overpass.
