Was over by Golden Hill Elementary the other day and noticed a house for sale for $900,000. It's listed by Sothebys!

Guess real estate in South Park is making a comeback?

This is priced too high, about twice the avg for the street. A La Jolla developer-flipper picked this up cheaply and rebuilt it so that it now has a suburb-style yawning garage door facing the street. It has that sickly fertilizer-green lawn that developers think is necessary. Anyone who pays the flipper price will find themselves under water soon enough. History repeats. If it goes for a bit more than $5K, the flipper will be lucky and still make a great profit.

Hearing an owl almost every night around dusk. Sounds like it's coming from the eucalyptus grove in the canyon where Elm Street dead-ends into the trailhead at Bancroft.

So cool!

Haven't heard the owl, but this reminds me that I haven't heard that rooster over on Felton Street in awhile. I mentioned it to my neighbor, and he told me that they sent a petition around asking the owner to get rid of it. So sad. I loved that rooster!

SOUTH PARK this design reflects what drew me to the area. Victorian homes and unique shops and eateries.

There are no 19th century houses in South Park. There is one 1900 house that was moved here. The oldest houses that were built here are from 1905. The house in the picture is not, or never has been, in South Park.

I love that South Park is just a short bike ride away from me. Never disappoints (especially Hamilton's)

Who in South Park lost their pet male red-cheeked Cordon bleu finch (Uraeginthus bengalus)? He has been eating millet seed in my back yard for two mornings. Very pretty native of sub-Saharan Africa.

None

Also, there's another kind of pet bird we are hearing in South Park, and we'd really like to know what it is. It makes a very loud whistly "twee-ooh" sound repeatedly. The sound seems to be coming from somewhere around Bancroft/Elm/32nd/Edgemont. Anyone know the type pet bird that makes this sound?
