Hands on interaction with the birds

Oct 14, 2014 John California, United States

I must admit that I've always had an interest in big birds and read a little on Falconry, however lacking any firsthand experience, West Coast Falconry's' Hawk Walk was one of the most remarkable introductions to predators that are not normally amenable to human contact, my wife and I have ever had! Interfacing with was amazing!!!

The staff's dedication to their work is amazing, and they are doing a great public service allowing the general public an opportunity to intersect with the beautiful wild natural world so easily taken for granted in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We can't thank them enough... and we'll be back for their 3 day intensive...

The presentation prior to working with the hawk was entertaining and information.

The BIRDS!

We can't say enough about this warm and fascinating place. From the adrenaline rush of landing and launching Cowboy to the pure joy of my psychic cuddle with Shakti, we will return to West Coast Falconry again and again. The knowledge, patience and passion of the staff, and even their quite entertaining banter, offer something for everyone from the sportsman to the environmentalist, even including Geeks like us. We're enjoying our s.w.a.g. and anticipating an adventure with the OWLS or the FALCONS at some point soon. Gratitude to Travelzoo, too!
