- Birdman of Alcatraz
Chris Ward, Captan Byrde & His wonderful Macaws the ultimate in walkaround entertainment. Captain Byrde began his entertainment career as a street performer on San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. For a whole decade, the Captain terrorized tourists from all over the world as his birds, Lady Domonique, and Lord Reggae performed tricks and posed for photos. Event planners began booking him for corporate events, fairs and festivals. The Captain is no longer seen on Fisherman’s Wharf, but his stint there was so memorable that corporate planners now create backdrops for “Streets of San Francisco” parties; in other words they bring the people and the Wharf to the Captain.
