It was such a unique experience to be able to learn about and even interact/hold such a variety of birds. The birds were beautiful and so well trained. We had an amazing time (and have some great pictures!). Definitely a once in a lifetime experience!

Richard is correct - it depends on if you go to his location or do it somewhere else (such as a hotel) and how many birds you want. If you e-mail him directly through his website he is pretty good about responding!
