Left tale light goes out only after dark when headlights and park lights go on

Any one have any idea why?

Update: after my other tail light started doing the same thing. Then my headlight going out, I took a closer look. Turns out one of he fibers in the bulb was burned. There are two, I guess if the parking light thread is burned the brake light will not work. It will only work when the parking lights are off because that part of the current path is bypassed when its off.

Long story short, it was the light bulb that was bad... Duh!!
