LA's Wild Parrots

Hosted by

Since the 1960's, flocks of parrots have been reported all over Southern California, from the San Fernando Valley to Orange, Ventura, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. They are not an urban legend, although it's hard to explain where they came from. Recently, KCRW's Saul Gonzalez heard what he calls a "sonic blast" in South Pasadena.
