Book - The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill
A San Francisco Chronicle Bestseller. This is a true and unique story set in an 'urban wilderness' about Mark Bittner, a transient, and a wild flock of conures (captive escapees and their offspring) who have made San Francisco's Telegraph Hill home for over twenty years. Mark gradually forms a relationship with the entire flock and gets to know them intimately and individually.
I found a certain innocence and naivety to the story. After 30 years of living with parrots it made me stop and look back at just how novice I once was, but at the same time realize that the relationship that Mark formed with these parrots is different and deeper than most any relationship a parrot enthusiasts will ever form with their birds. Mark was blessed with being accepted as one of the flock and given the opportunity to make observations about their instincts and natural behaviors that most of us will never have the pleasure of doing.
