Pigeons, Berkeley

This Berkeley traffic light is a curious example of a good automation because it was selected by these pigeons to play a game, I guess, a very important competition because they are playing it every day at sunset. The winner sits in front of the red light while is ON. 

I keep wondering why these Berkeley pigeons selected such a place to stand on a queue.  Waiting in line at a traffic light is a human behavior, but in this case, it applies to pigeons and humans.

The birds sitting in front of the red light, while it is ON, are waiting for the green light as a sign to move.  If the bird inside the red light does not move out, on green, causes all the other birds start to honk. A good automations may be beneficial to humans and animals.
