Had an incredible experience this April with Lorrie and her birds! My partner and I did the 2 hour hawk walk. We live in Brooklyn so there is no way we can ever take up falconry full time due to space (and the seriously huge commitment of time and resources!) but visiting and learning from a master falconer like Lorrie...

My wife and I had the greatest time with Lorrie and her raptors! Being that close to each animal really gave us an appreciation for all their intricate details and specializations...and they all have so much personality and vigor. Lorrie answered every question we could think up about the bird's behaviors and habitats. She was also a very welcoming and... More

After catching the tail-end of a Talons! presentation at The Cloisters last year, we couldn't wait to find an opportunity to spend time with Lorie and the raptors on their home turf. On the first day of our vacation this August, we left Manhattan very early and drove up to Earlville for our full-day Falconry Academie. We were introduced to... More

I set up a photo session for a Saturday. The reservations were made and confirmed. I also made non-refundable reservations at The Hampton Inn. After traveling 5 hours to the hotel, the owner emails me to tell me the session was cancelled. No phone call. No compensation. No getting back to me with another date. Nothing!!

Several months in advance, I booked a hawk walk for a group of 4. It was confirmed, but then rescheduled by Laura for a personal commitment, which was fine. Unfortunately, that was the last we heard from her. 2 days before our scheduled appointment, I tried to email her for a confirmation, and asked her which forms of payment she... More

What an amazing experience it was to get up close and personal with a hawk, falcon, eagle owl , barn owl and 2 funny and intelligent ravens. With all of these magnificent birds, I have to admit that it was Bella Luna, the barred owl, who stole my heart. Looking into her huge dark eyes was unlike anything I have... More

Where else can you have the chance to be up close and interact with a raven, owls, hawk and falcon? Lorrie, the master falconer, was gracious, fun and informative. In our 8 week cross country trip our time at Talons stands out as the #1 experience! We learned about the birds and how they are trained. The most exciting part... More
