Ultimately his search led him to the wild parrot flock, which, in turn, led him back to writing, and his first book: ‘The Wild Parrots! of Telegraph Hill.’ The hardcover edition, published by Random House, was a best seller. The paperback edition comes out in late January 2005. G. 83 mins.- AP and staff reports
