Not an Ex-Parrot Yet, Thank You Very Much
We have a flock of wild parrots in the neighborhood. They seem to have a special fondness for sunflower seeds.
We've seen as many as ten at one time. I only hope they can avoid the neighborhood hawks—they probably stand out like sore thumbs to raptors used to bland, featureless mourning doves and whatnot. Spicy tropical delights!
Now, of course, there are the famous Telegraph Hill parrots here in SF, though I read recently that they are in some kind of danger (though I'm not sure why).
