"Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill"
"The first half of the documentary film focuses on Mark Bittner's relationship with the Parrots living on the Telegraph Hill in the center of San Francisco and how he came to be their caretakers. He has a name for each one and gives the audience stories of how he's interacted with them. Included in these reminiscences, is general background information on bird life in San Francisco and the various theories on how these South American parrots came to exist in the Bay Area. The second half of Parrots deals with the fate of the birds now that Mark has to vacate his small home for the last three years. Apparently, his care of the birds has attracted world wide attention, especially in Europe. There is never really any tension in the fate of Mark or the parrots since, as Mark points out, the birds are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves. The viewer probably has a little less confidence in Mark though, as he says he has no idea what he will do." - imdb review by kasserine (US)

On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 4.6.0, also known as "Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill". Parrot is a virtual machine aimed at running all dynamic languages.

Parrot 4.6.0 is available on Parrot's FTP site, or by following the download instructions. For those who want to hack on Parrot or languages that run on top of Parrot, we recommend our organization page on GitHub, or you can go directly to the official Parrot Git repo on Github To clone the Parrot Git repo into a directory called 'parrot', use the following:

    git clone git://
If you want it to be in a directory other than 'parrot', then just give that as a second argument to clone:
    git clone git:// parrot_foo
