The London Parrots

16 09 2009

I’m still not sure where I’m going with this but I find this migration story fascinating. Parrots indigenous to Asia have managed to escape and find a home in the suburbs of London. I learned of this when I was staying with a family member in Bromley and haven’t been able to get the story out my mind. I heard these birds when I was there and found the whole thing surreal. This is a neat little transnational narrative of sorts and I’m wondering if it has legs to go on further… maybe incorporate it into the visual theme of my project.
