Late yesterday, we got word from a tipster that there were some new occupants at the Beverly Center: "It seems that some rather large birds have decided to call the Beverly Center home on the north side of the shopping center... I wish I had a picture to submit as well, but I'm sure it's still there to gawk at. I just saw it through my sunroof this afternoon." We didn't catch any of the birds unfortunately, but we did snap pics of the nest, which looks like it could support some pretty hefty ones. Those are some pretty significant droppings, too.
