New England Falconry founder and falconer Chris Davis educates customers about the lives of predatory birds and their conservation with hands-on falconry sessions. In each 90-minute session, up to 20 participants take trained hawks into the field, watching as the raptors soar through western Massachusetts' rustic meadows and forests, perching on trees and swooping through the sky. Brave souls armor hands and forearms with provided heavy-duty hawking gloves to give the winged wonders a comfortable place to land after their flights. In addition to handling and breeding birds of prey, Mr. Davis conducts research on threatened species.
