It was very fun and educational. We were able to catch and release the Harris Hawk three times from various distances. They also set up photo opportunities. This couple obviously cares about their birds and conservation. A unique and awesome experience.

This was an amazing experience. My whole family enjoyed it. I would recommend this to anyone. It was fabulous! I would do it again in a heartbeat. The hawks were well trained and beautiful. To have one land on your outstretched hand was incredible.

Learning about the raptors (Harris' Hawks) that we were working with and putting them through their paces. It was an amazing experience to be up close and personal with these magnificent creatures.

Learned a lot about Hayduke and Steam - amazing experience - such magnificent creatures. Will definitely be back to do a Hawk Walk!

Loved having the falcon land on my glove. The information provided by Kirk and Denise was most interesting.
