Comical Critters-Wild Parrots in San Francisco

Flocks of wild parrots in San Francisco? Yes, it's true. Originally spotted on Telegraph Hill in the early 2000s, they have since spread to other parts of the City, including Dolores Park and the Presidio.

Monday evening, as we walked over Russian Hill to North Beach, we stopped to enjoy the antics of this group along the Vallejo Street Stairs.

You might have read the book, The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill or perhaps you've seen the documentary film. Take a look at the trailer from this link.

Want to see or read more? If your local bookstore doesn't carry it, you can buy the DVD or the book. This is a great gift idea, too.
