I am late.....but it has been an energetic week, full of positive occurrences.....first, my hearing in my left ear is slowly (but surely) improving.....second, we have had TWO DAYS of sunshine.....
third, the wonderful Marianne and her son Felix visited Lolo and KJ and.... I had a phone call - so Marianne, Lo and I all had a chat! And...it was like we knew each other for many years.
Anway, here is my post....on the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill. Feathered Beauties who are near and dear to my heart.
There was a PBS Documentary on them...some of these clips may have come from that film. The man with the long ponytail gave them their names and their key to survival for many years. He ultimately was forced to move.....but I can personally attest the parrots are thriving and doing well on thier own. I live about 8 miles from Telegraph Hill....but the Parrots fly through the Presidio (daily excercise?) and I have often encountered them on my hikes. You can't miss them because they fly as a group - squawking non-stop as they swoop and soar. When there is sun, you can see the bright green and red feathers. And...they make it over to my street from time-to-time. They are a joy to behold....and a testament to the power of Nature and the will to survive. If you are interested, you should check out the Film on Netflix.
