Raptor Day

Recently about 100 folks showed up at the Pacific Rim Institute on Whidbey Island to view a demonstration from local falconers. They were treated to awesome flying and a chance to talk to the falconers and get up close and personal with the birds of prey.

Steve, Sue and Brad put on quite a show. Three falcons and a Harris hawk entertained the group. The birds swooped and dove over the heads of the crowd as they attacked the lures flown by the falconers.

  
Afterward everyone had an opportunity to meet and greet.

  
The kids stood in awe of these magnificent birds.

  
  
It was an experience they will never forget.

Get out there and be amazed…
