As the legend goes, back in the 1970s a group of parrots escaped from someone's private zoo somewhere in the Valley. Over the years, they multiplied til there were literally hundreds of them.
Every fall/winter there's usually a migratory group of the birds that comes through my neighborhood, but some people are saying that 100-300 of them have relocated to here on a more semi-permanent basis.
That'd be fun if they didn't make a freakin' racket every morning at daybreak. I took some video for you.
