BIRD TALK’s national sales manager, Louis Brandt, and I are still going through pictures from the Houston Parrot Festival (January 25 to 27, 2008), and here’s one of us “representing” with our new BIRD TALK shirts. You’d have a tough time locating a parrot-themed banner, streamer, tablecloth – or anything else with a parrot on it – in the whole state of Texas after this event; the parrot-party décor took over the entire lower floor of the Houston Airport Hilton. I even overheard one hotel guest ask the front desk if Jimmy Buffet was in town. These “Parrot Heads” however, were dedicated to the real feathered kind. Stay tuned for more Houston Parrot photos in the Bird Travel section on BirdChannel.com.
