Format: DVD
There's more interesting wildlife in San Francisco than you might imagine.

I vividly remember going to this movie in San Francisco. About a week later walking about a block from the Embarcadero Cinema, I hear the tremendous squawking from the trees, and look up to see these parrots flying around a block away from where I saw them in the movie. A friend of mine saw the whole flock as he was driving down Columbus Avenue.

So, Wild Parrots is a great documentary where Mark Bittner has shown us the personalities of these different birds, and documented their trials, their dysfunctional love lives, and the dangerous lives they lead.

In this presentation of a great and compelling story,the birds become characters with distinct personalities, such as the musical Mingus, and one can feel a strong sense of wonder at how this movie came to be made. It's also a great love story and a transition for the main character, and I was truly impressed with the quality of this movie and have recommended it to numerous people.

If you love wildlife documentaries, I think you will definitely love this movie.

As in many movies about San Francisco, the city itself becomes a character in the movie.

I think you will enjoy it, and I hope this was helpful.

Lovely story, well told, expertly produced. Kudo's to players, birds and humans, and kudo's to the producers. Well done! Thank you for telling this story and for telling it so well.

The descriptions given by Amazon (above) are quite accurate so if you are interested in urban wildlife or birds and if those descriptions sparked your curiosity then you will like this documentary.
The story of Mark Bittner's life and the story of the birds are tightly woven together. He spent a lot of time observing and interacting with the birds and the filmmakers were able to show what he learned about the birds and their surprisingly distinctive personalities. There are extremely funny scenes and also some very touching, sad scenes as you learn about the individual birds and the flock's collective history.
