Parrot Books Recommended Reading
This touching & humble story is how one man found his life's calling amoung a flock of wild parrots who resided on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. The author became the local wild parrot expert and tourist attraction. During daily feedings he stood with parrots perched along both arms and surrounding him in the trees. He would take his last bit of money to buy food for the parrots. When a parrot was sick or injured he would take them into his home to care for them. I will say no more as I don't want to spoil the story. Thumbs up to this book and the documentary movie The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill to any bird lover.
