Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill Find New Home in the Burbs

Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill

Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill new home in the Burbs

The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill have found themselves a new nesting ground…..”The Burbs” of Brisbane California.

These Cherry Headed Conures became popular in the documentary “Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill” by Mark Bittner.

Now these beautiful birds have moved to the suburbs to enjoy the tranquility of suburban life (LOL).  I would love these guys to move to my neighborhood.  It would be great to wake up and see and hear them….I wouldn’t mind all the chatter.

    Help , the trees are being cut down on Green Street where the birds live.
    How do we prevent this?

    Hi. I’m Mark Bittner, the author of the book and the subject of the documentary film the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill. Just a note to say that the birds haven’t really moved to Brisbane. As they’ve grown in numbers, they’ve expanded their territory. They’re still very much here in San Francisco. I’m back on Telegraph Hill and I see or hear them every day.

      Hi Mark,

      It is nice to meet you. Sorry about that. I didn’t mean to say that they all moved. I appreciate you clearing that up.

      We loved the documentary on you and the birds and of course, we bought our own copy to keep forever.

      Thanks again
