The Bird Man of Newport Beach

Ski Meinschein, "the Bird Man of Newport Beach," soaks up the warm sunshine and gentle breeze Thursday at the Newport Pier with his scarlet macaws, Rojo and Chichi, as Carolina Queme of Coban, Guatemala, moves in to kiss a bird. Meinschein goes out only when the weather is nice, and he enjoys the smiles he gets from locals and tourists.
