Bird in a Tree

Four days ago, as my wife and I walked up Meade just beyond Texas Street approaching Arizona, what should we see? Scooters are everywhere in our neighborhood and nearby Normal Heights and North Park. I wonder who placed this one so and why. Did it not function properly? Is someone angry about the Bird (and Lime) invasion? Reasons aside, the treeing presented irresistible photo-op.
