"Wild Parrots of SF (cherry headed conures)" NORTH BEACH Tip by bluebug

NORTH BEACH, San Francisco: 9 reviews and 7 photos


These are just a couple of parrots that live wild here in the city. Most of them are escapees from when they were transported from a south american country to some pet store here. Or they escaped from their owners and have made it out on their own in the wild. They fly around downdown . This picture was taken near the Embarcadero.
They hang out really high up in the trees so it was hard to take a clear picture of them.

If you want to learn more about more of these birds there is a wonderful documentary called 'The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill'
