    There’s a guy I see at Fort Funston now and then who has a few trained macaws, they fly free and always come back to him, maybe he was there with them. Always amazing to see!

    bright red and green love birds have been singing on the rooftop of the house i see out my window every day for a week. there are wood doves that nested on a ladder on the same house’s back porch with baby birds i can hear peeping from my room.. they just hatched. maybe the parrot would like it here too.

    the parrots have spread from telegraph hill to the mission–i’ve seen bunches of them flying about, and heard some fly by about 10 minutes ago.

    I just shot photos of this bird (and his two friends) yesterday by Seal Rock. His name (the red macaw) is Rudy. Owner was a nice dude….I threw a few up on my flickr page (mikeobryan)
