We learned a lot about falcons and hawks in a short time. It was wonderful to dispel my misconceptions about falconry in general. They are very knowledgeable and passionate about understanding, saving and protecting birds. They provide useful services with their birds to farmers and other businesses. I highly recommend attending the program that interests you. I'm pretty sure I'll... More

Was a very good experience being intimate with birds of the wild by getting to have them perch on your gloved arm and see them... More

Two of us went on a private morning tour and got to interact with a falcon in the field followed by introduction to some of the owls that were on hand. They have approximately 20 different birds, all were beautiful and in good condition, obviously well taken care of. Will... More

We had the most wonderful and unique morning session learning about falcons and hawks and applying our new knowledge with hands on experience with the birds. The guides/teachers were excellent--imparting both quality education and the confidence to use our knowledge in handling the birds, We treasure the time spent to learn more about these fabulous birds. And, the photo opportunities... More

Had a great time with an introduction to birds of prey at West Coast Falconry. The hands-on experience was engaging and exciting and sparked an interest for more - thanks to the WCF team for a great time!

This is a great experience for anyone but would be exceptional for young boy or girl ages 9-13. The two young ladies in charge were very knowledgeable in the sport of falconry and did an excellent job with the birds. I plan to visit them again in the not too distant future

If anyone is interested in birds of prey, the basic falconry lesson is awesome! You get hands on experience with great and knowledgeable instructors. Had a blast working with a hawk. Definitely a great time! Can't wait till I can do another experience!
