Awesome experience. The class is well managed and you will get plenty of time to have the bird fly to you but in no way is abusive to the bird. Beautiful back drop of mountains as you hike around.

My daughter and I had a fantastic morning hiking with these folks in the hills around Alpine as their Harris Hawk- Hey Duke swooped along from person to person, demonstrating powerful beautiful grace. Magical!

Wonderful and worth every penny. They have a very special permit to allow you to hold the birds. Other than getting your own falconry license, this is the only place you get to interact with these birds of prey.
