district. The criminality of the Sydney Ducks was the catalyst for the formation of the first Committee of Vigilance of 1851 (San Francisco Vigilance Movement). The vigilantes usurped political power from the corrupt or incompetent officials in the city, conducted secret trials, lynchings, and deportations, which effectively decimated the Sydney Ducks. The area where the Sydney Ducks clustered, the base of Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, San Francisco), was originally known as "Sydney-Town," but by the 1860s was called exclusively by its better-known name, the Barbary Coast (Barbary Coast, San Francisco, California). Utopia Onyxx, along with fellow students Mercury (Mercury (Marvel Comics)) and Loa (Loa (comics)), was tasked with keeping peace at the riots on Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, San Francisco).

It chronicles the relationship between Mark Bittner, an unemployed musician who is living rent-free in a cabin in Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, San Francisco) in San Francisco, California, and a flock of feral parrots (cherry-headed (Red-masked Parakeet) and two blue-crowned conures (Blue-crowned Parakeet)) that he feeds and interacts with. Bittner also wrote a book by the same name on the subject.

(Image:MarketStreetSanFran.JPG) Almost immediately after the quake re-planning and reconstruction plans were hatched to quickly rebuild the city. One of the more famous and ambitious plans, proposed before the fire, came from famed urban planner, Daniel Burnham. His bold plan called for Haussmann (Baron Haussmann) style avenues, boulevards, and arterial thoroughfares that radiated across the city, a massive civic center complex with classical structures, what would have been the largest urban park in the world, stretching from Twin Peaks to Lake Merced with a large athenaeum (wikt:athenaeum) at its peak, and various other proposals. This plan was dismissed at the time and by critics now, as impractical and unrealistic to municipal supply and demand. Property owners and the Real Estate industry were against the idea as well due to the amounts of their land the city would have to purchase to realize such proposals. While the original street grid was restored, many of Burnham's proposals eventually saw the light of day such as a neo-classical (Neoclassical architecture) civic center complex, wider streets, a preference of arterial thoroughfares, a subway under Market Street (Market Street Subway), a more people friendly Fisherman's Wharf (Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco), and a monument to the city on Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, San Francisco), Coit Tower. Loa, along with fellow students Mercury (Mercury (Marvel Comics)) and Onyxx (Onyxx (comics)), was tasked with keeping peace at the riots on Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, San Francisco) after the mutant-hate group "Humanity Now!" marched from Sacramento to San Francisco to promote "Proposition X," displeasing many citizens of San Francisco, mutant and non-mutant alike. ''Dark Avengers Uncanny X-Men: Utopia #1'' The last hazards to California-bound vessels were the approach and entrance to San Francisco Bay. The Spanish had picked Monterey, California as their first Capitol due to its easier and safer approach to the harbor as well as having a better climate. The Farallon Islands off the mouth of San Francisco Bay were the graveyard of several ships, and the narrow, often fog-shrouded opening into San Francisco Bay was always a danger. Soon after the ship traffic built up ship pilots (Maritime pilot) who were knowledgeable of the bay were at work boarding incoming (and outgoing) ships and guiding the ships to a safe anchorage in the bay. By 1851 the tangle of ships in the Bay had led to the creation of a Harbourmaster who dictated where ships could drop anchor. Once inside San Francisco Bay, vessels were reported and identified to the people of San Francisco by the watchman with a telescope in a tower erected in September 1849 on Telegraph Hill, San Francisco. The watchman signaled the presence of incoming ships to the people in the city by hoisting up the telegraph mast one semaphore arm for a schooner, two for a brig, three for a ship and two raised about 45 degree semaphore signals for a paddle steamer. These signals were soon known by most residents of San Francisco and today are commemorated in the name Telegraph Hill. The first landing place on the north-eastern tip of the San Francisco peninsula was a rocky promontory below Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, San Francisco) later known as Clarke's Point that jutted into the San Francisco Bay at the line of what is now Broadway and Battery Streets. Yerba Buena Cove swept inland from the subsequently named Clarke's Point to as far as Montgomery Street to the west, and further south and east to Rincon Point at the south of Market area at the foot of Folsom and Spear streets.

On October 18, 1850, the ship ''Oregon'' signaled to the hill as it was entering the Golden Gate the news of California's recently acquired statehood (U.S. state).
