Not to be shown up by pigeon messengers, hawks have flocked to the mail-service industry to deliver anything from small rodents to “Congratulations! You have just won 1,000,000 hawks!” letters. Experience this winged titan and mail a birthday card with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a guided hike and falconry experience from West Coast Falconry, located in Marysville (an $80 value).

Featuring several fascinating birds, including hawks, owls, and falcons, West Coast Falconry brings aspiring ornithologists and casual feather-loving friends up close to intricate airborne creatures. With the two-hour Hawk Walk, avian enthusiasts hike through the Sierra foothills, enjoying the shade provided by oversize Birkenstocks and observing the hawks in a natural habitat.

Groups learn to identify hawks while they glide to and from future falconers' gloved fists. Guides teach hikers how to cast falcons from wrists, and then call them back by humming their favorite Kenny G track. This one-on-one bonding time with a bird of prey gives peepers an inside look into the history of falconry and its role in local ecosystems. Cameras are welcome if they promise not to disturb the birds, and West Coast Falconry can burn photo CDs for an extra fee.

West Coast Falconry

Guided by the watchful eyes of master falconer Kate Marden, West Coast Falconry introduces avian enthusiasts to eagle owls, falcons, and hawks through an apprentice course, educational demonstrations, and aerial displays of predatory birds hunting. Various excursions give small groups of participants up-close interaction with the birds, enabling them to explore natural avian habitats and observe the predatory birds in flight, hunting, and while picking up their dry cleaning. Gloved game chasers can also try casting and calling owls, hawks, and falcons to and from their fists.
