The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill : A Love Story . . .with Wings
The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill : A Love Story . . .with Wings
by Mark Bittner
Book Description: The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill is the inspiring story of how one man found his lifeâ€s workâ€and true loveâ€among a gang of wild parrots roosting in one of Americaâ€s most picturesque urban settings. 

Mark Bittner was down on his luck. Heâ€d gone to San Francisco at the age of twenty-one to take a stab at a music career, but he hadnâ€t had much success. After many years as an odd-jobber in the area, he accepted work as a housekeeper for an elderly woman. The gig came with a rent-free studio apartment on the cityâ€s famed Telegraph Hill, which had somehow become home to a flock of brilliantly colored wild parrots. 

In this unforgettable story, Bittner recounts how he became fascinated by the birds and made up his mind to get to know them and gain their trust. He succeeds to such a degree that he becomes the local wild parrot expert and a tourist attraction. People canâ€t help gawking at the man who, during daily feedings, stands with parrots perched along both arms and atop his head. When a documentary filmmaker comes along to capture the phenomenon on film, the story takes a surprising turn, and Bittnerâ€s life truly takes flight.
