What's With the Bird?
A question we get a lot is (and we're paraphrasing a little bit): what the hell is a bird doing in your logo?
It's a simple answer, really. The bird is a halcyon (also known as a kingfisher.) Technically, the bird is a Stork-billed Kingfisher (Pelargopsis capensis) And technically it is no longer classified in the Halcyon genus (but still in the Halcyonidae family,) but who's counting?
So if you wondered, that's why there's a bird. (Also why the name of our festival is Alcyone.)
