A sad update to the SF Parrot Story.
This one relayed to us by San Francisco Urban Adventure Correspondent Jay Pinka:
"The wild parrots of San Francisco's Telegraph Hill,
those colorful birds made famous by a book and movie,
may be evicted from towering trees where they like to
spend their days, proving that in the cutthroat Bay
Area real estate market, even feathered celebrities
have it tough." --San Francisco Chronicle, Tues 1 Nov 2005
