For the first time since we launched the “Where in Berkeley?” competition well over a year ago, nobody has the faintest idea where this rooster is (not even Ira Serkes). So we’re providing a clue — a photo taken from a distance, as the close-up does, we admit, make identification very difficult. The rooster is perched on top of the small building to the right of the garage.

We await your answers in the Comments.

Update, 10.07.11: Three days after we posted the original photo (immediately above) we finally have a winner — MaybeYou identified the location as being Ashby Place, just off Ashby near College Avenue. Congratulations, MaybeYou, on being this week’s winner. And a special mention to Ira Serkes for keeping us all entertained in his valiant efforts to win. This was so much fun, in fact, we’re thinking the tougher the better for future competitions, so be warned!

Know where this is? Take a guess and let us know in the Comments.
