The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill

San Francisco has its own flock of wild parrots that have lived taken roost in the city for quite a few years. A new documentary The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill is now out in theaters, and takes a close look at these tropical birds that somehow ended up making the hills of the city their home. I've often seen and heard the flock flying overhead, squawking mercilessly. When you first discover that they are indeed parrots, it certainly piques your interest. Wild parrots? In San Francisco??? Each parrot has a name and is studied by a remarkable fellow, Mark Bittner, who is featured in the documentary.
