Dispatches from Busker Fest: Parrot guy Gary Allen

One of the popular attractions at the Busker Festival yesterday was Gary Allen, aka The Parrot Guy.  Most people who've lived or worked in downtown Ottawa will recognize him and his birds.  Gary's "act" was taking photos of people with several of his birds perched on top of them.  He does weddings and fundraisers too.

  1. Wow! I want to be him when I grow up.

  2. Does anyone know how to get in contact with Gary Allen (Parrot Guy)? He does birthday parties too and he gave us a business card last year but I can't find it and I've been unable to find a website or any info on the Internet. Thanks!
