As promised I am going to suggest another documentary, this time it is Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill. The above image is not a parrot but you may not realize this but there is a lack of complementary parrot images befitting this blog–a Lear parakeet will have to do. Back to the doc, of course it had a couple things immediately going for it in my book–my favorite American city + animals. The happy ending was an unexpected bonus (I hope that’s not giving it away). Since it’s Friday I thought perhaps you may want to find a film to watch over the weekend, this has my vote.  I don’t watch much television and don’t have the stomach for reality TV (I can go visit my family when I am in need of outlandish escapades) so I suppose a documentary fills that voyeuristic void for me, it’s usually a guiltless pleasure and I rarely wish I hadn’t wasted my time on one. 
Have a fabulous weekend, I shall be thinking of you and I can’t wait to show you what cuteness I have uncovered for Monday!


  1. Thanks for the recommendation! I watched A Man Named Pearl last weekend and loved it!! I agree documentaries are the perfect solution for reality tv. (Although I’m still kind of an addict of the latter.)

  2. Oh I am so glad you loved ‘A man name Pearl’, doesn’t it make you feel like you can do ANYTHING if you love it and set your heart to it? I probably would be addicted to reality TV as well if I allowed myself to watch, I am such a big procrastinator that I really don’t need yet another excuse to put off what I need to do. I think reality TV is for those with discipline that I don’t possess, lol.

  3. i loved this documentary soooo much. after i saw it i just wanted to go to san francisco to see the parrots. made me feel sad for the man that took care of them all those years, though.
