Falcons, Hawks, and Owls…Oh My! All three types of birds that we have here at the center.
We have come up with this experience to show you all three types of birds that we have here at the center without having to leave the training green (Kate’s front lawn). This is a perfect experience for hot summer days and those with mobility issues.
This falcon, hawk, and owl experience is available started in January 2019 and will be offered all year round.
First : Falcons – Watch as a falconer lure stoops one of our birds as they reach amazing speeds in an aerial demonstration of swiftness and agility. See this falcon demonstrate why they are one of the fastest creatures on the planet.
Second: Hawks – After we fly the falcon, we glove up and take one of our trained Harris hawks to the training green and put them through their paces. Here you have the opportunity to interact with one of our raptors. We teach you to call the bird to the glove and cast it away.
Third: Owls – And lastly, we finish up with the owl. Meet one of the most primitive raptors on the planet, learn about its role in nature, its habitat, and how falconers have related to this enigmatic bird in the past and now in the present.
Throughout you will have photo opportunities. This program has been developed by popular demand by our past clients, and now we are offering it as an event perfectly suited to the summer, when we cannot hike through our woods and fly in the valley.
