A group of up to six participants observe Cailleach, a eurasian eagle owl, as she flies at close proximity. Trainers lead her through a series of exercises, and attendants can attempt to beckon her to their gloved hands.

  • $49 for a basic falconry lesson for two (a $100 value)<p>

During falconry lessons, knowledgeable instructors pass on bird-handling techniques in sessions designed to acquaint beginners and advanced students with the majestic birds. In addition to learning about falconry history, habitats, and conservation efforts, pairs practice holding the birds, casting them from gloves, and calling them back. For an extra fee, participants can bring a tagalong photographer to capture shots of birds chasing down mice and then challenging them to games of chess.<p>

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.

Great lesson, but I would have enjoyed getting to know more about the other birds you have on site. It would be great if the handlers introduced more of the birds first, then brought out the hawks for us to learn how to handle. But overall a fun introduction and interaction with these beautiful birds. And the handlers were great! Lots of fun and very knoledgeable.
