Birds of prey displayed to crowds as Mike Dupuy delivers inspiring speeches that employ falcons for both lofty metaphors and audience entertainment. Mike interacts with the crowd by providing two guests the chance to let the falcon take off from and land on their arms.
Mike Dupuy Falconry
Master falconer and bird-of-prey expert Mike Dupuy shares his love of the 4,000-year-old sport of falconry during exciting and informative demonstrations with his avian costars. A professional public speaker, Mike entertains his audiences with personal anecdotes and motivational speeches that use falconry as a metaphor to encourage them to follow their dreams. Guests also get to learn about each feathered raptor while it surveys the crowd for wild Energizer bunnies, and Mike encourages audience interaction by inviting volunteers from the audience to hold the hawk and try in vain to teach it to bark like a dog.
