About 2 years ago I cought a show on "PBS" about a fellow taking care of a colony of parakeets that were wild in SF.

He was living in a house for free and the owners had to sell the property so he had move out, leaving the birds to fend for themselves. Kind of a sad story.

Does anyone have any followup on the birds?

Anyone know what I am talking about?

I just thought of that story the other day and was just worried about the birds........

Those weren't parakeets, they were cherry headed conures. I saw the show too. I believe itwas called "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill".

I just found the link to the film - here it is:
