Ken Kramer's About San Diego

Wild Parrots of Ocean Beach

Clip: Season 1 | 3m 21s | Video has closed captioning.

This park is a great place to see the wild parrots of Ocean Beach and Point Loma. Best time to see small flocks of them flying by is early morning or late afternoon. There are estimated to be anywhere from 100 to 350 Mexican Red-Headed Amazon Parrots living in nearby palm trees. Their playful screeching has become part of the soundscape of these beach communities.
