Birds OF Prey Demonstration

Birds Of Prey Demonstration

The Raptor Demonstration - a quick overview of falconry and the birds of prey show.

Spectacular birds of prey demonstrations. What makes them so special?

It is the bond between falconer and the birds of prey, the mutual trust and respect. It is the passion the falconer has for the raptors. You are vitness to this interaction of man and beast. The falconer lets the birds fly free and they will surprise from all angles, sometime they even surprise the falconer. This because they are clever, sly and fast on the wing or in the case of the owls, just plain lazy.
