Love this movie, although I find myself wondering every now and then how the parrots are doing. Great true story with a very sweet ending.

Oh, I know. I cried, too. I think it's a truly touching movie - because it is so real.

Much has happened, not all good, since the documentary was made. Here's an update from earlier this year. http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Wild-Parrots-of-Telegra...

It makes sense that they would move when mark left.
I'm more concerned that maybe Mark and his new girl Julie , did not last as a couple. He seemed certainly pleasant and intelligent, but he had an unusual life.
