The wild parrots of San Francisco are pretty hilarious. The "tower thing" is coit tower and they during the day they are often on one of the slopes…. but at sunset they migrate to this park: http://goo.gl/maps/7pju7 down by the ferry building.

I saw a documentary about this. Thanks to the internet for providing it in its entirety:

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

Go and check out this bike shop. Nearby are some very nice cafe's and wine bars. The street sits between the Castro (good place to visit) and the original Mission are (bit sketchy for my tastes).

Of all the San Fran stuff I did (Union Square, Fishermans's Warf, etc) this was the day that stood out for me.

Yeah - a buddy of mine lived about two blocks away from the park I linked to. When I was working down there, I'd see them all the time. They make a hell of a racket, and are pretty entertaining birds (if you're a closet birder :) )
