The Wild Parrots of SF: They're Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaccck!
For the first time today, I saw them in the juniper bushes outside my window. There were only three of them, but they were making enough noise to wake up the entire neighborhood. They're back! The wild parrots of San Francisco, like the swallows of San Juan Capistrano, have returned to feed on the juniper berries from the bushes on our street. Now we'll see them for the next 8 weeks or so, sometimes as many as 15 of them all in one bush. There's an electricity in the air once more. Summer has officially begun. The parrots are back!
