Watch the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill – On PBS Tonight

December 28, 2010

Independent Lens is re-airing the popular documentary, The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill, tonight. Check your local TV schedules to see when your local PBS station is carrying it.

If you’re a parrot lover and haven’t seen this film yet, set your DVRs! This is a must-see story of a man and his relationship with a feral flock of conures in San Francisco. You may not agree with his choices, but it’s an incredible story — not only about how a flock of feral parrots is surviving/thriving in an urban environment, but about how one man found meaning in his life by getting to know them.

Watch a preview:

More info about The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill can be found on the Independent Lens (PBS) website.

Mark Bittner, the central (human) character in this documentary, also wrote a book about his experience. Both the book and the DVD are available on Amazon and other stores.

Update: There’s a live chat scheduled with Mark Bittner for tomorrow. Visit the Independent Lens site at 10 am PST to ask him your questions! What a great opportunity.
