The unusual opportunity to learn about and be close to a bird of prey. Having a hawk alight on my glove was a real thrill.

The entire experience was amazing. Being up close and personal with these amazing birds of prey was a encounter that I'll remember for a very long time.

The falconers who delivered the presentation were fantastic (I was so enthralled with the birds, I don't remember the ladies names!) and gave so much information, from the history of falconry to facts about the birds... they love their job and their passion for the birds shows.

Having the hawk fly to my arm.

The knowledge of the trainers and the high level of safety being so close to these amazing birds

Great people - amazing birds. So informative and fun all at the same time. Can't wait to go back. Really a unique experience.

Apr 06, 2015 Megan CA, United States

It was wonderful to be this close to an owl - such elusive creatures in the wild.

Staff was patient, knowledgeable and friendly. Accommodations for captive birds seemed to be good for them.
