The Raptors

In the verdant Cowichan Valley, Pacific Northwest Raptors cares for a diverse flock of birds of prey—owls twist their heart-shaped heads curiously, and hawks look on with eyes like copper coins. The staff provides them a safe habitat while educating the public about their habits, hunting methods, and favourite brands of feather cosmetics. Eagles and falcons ride warm zephyrs overhead daily, searching for prey high over the canopy when they aren’t perched back at the centre.

Avian experts demo the birds’ skills during encounters, which include the opportunity for patrons to have a hawk or owl perch on a gloved hand. Intensive workshops and week-long falconry courses let guests settle in with the animals beneath the towering trees, which hush each other liltingly in the wind. Regular family events at the centre facilitate bonding with the regal raptors, many of which help in film work and wildlife management.

A thrilling experience. My 12 year old godson enjoyed making the kukooburros laugh, felt the gentle swoosh of air as owls flew within inches of his head. I was blown away he the size of the birds, the length of their talons and the holes in the vultures head. The staff were knowledgable and friendly. A fabulous afternoon that will be repeated !
