DESCRIPTION: Red-masked Parakeet , latin name Aratinga erythrogenys Call it what you will, it is one of the famous wild parrots of Telegraph Hill. I have been hearing them quite a bit at lunch time even from out on Pier 14, and I found this one perched on a lamp pole right in front of the Ferry Building. Want to know more, check out for the latest on these birds. Oh and if you haven't seen the movie or read the book, please do so. It's quite a story.
