Wild parrots in San Francisco

Wild parrots in San Francisco

Shares

My first year in San Francisco, I'm living in Russian Hill.

One day I hear squawking up above like I've never heard, and I love birds, don't know why, but I look up.

I see a flock of big green parrots, almost feels miraculous.

Since then, I learn that SF has two flocks of such parrots, and for years, Marc Bittner has been studying and feeding them. I feel this is really cool.

Today, I just finished his book the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill and it was really good. It also discusses a related documentary by Judy Irving, same subject, and I gotta see it sometime.
