This was a wonderful experience with majestic raptors. The trainers were awesome and so very attentive to the birds' every need. Cant wait to go back for a longer experience.

We got a TravelZoo voucher for a 1 1/2 hour falconry experience. I only wished that we had booked a longer visit -- it was awesome! We went with our 13 year old son and happened to share the morning visit with a mom and her son who had been at the Harkey House Inn B&B in Yuba City with... More

My 7 y/o son loves raptors and I got a groupon for an intro to falconry class here. Just had to take him. Was worth driving 2 hours from SF to see the smile on his face when he called Don Diego (a Harris Hawk) to his arm! Beautiful birds they care for and educate with. He wants to go... More

WOW...if you've ever marveled at the beauty and wonder of hawks and other raptors, then this visit is a must. Fun history lesson about the magic & folklore of falconry sets the stage. Then the experience of calling a wild hawk to your outstretched (gloved!) arm and watching it hunt and feed - (not feeding on your arm that is)... More

Great presenters for both the intro falconry and owl encounter classes. We learned a lot, got some practical hands on experience, and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Bring good cameras, there are lots of photo opportunities. We are looking forward to the next class!

If you've ever been enchanted by falconers in the movies, the Hawk Walk is your chance to "glove up" and hike through beautiful oak studded hills with a master falconer. She taught us how to call Mari to our glove...what a rush when a large hawk flies right to you! Directly prior to the hike, our small group enjoyed a... More

An excellent class with two knowledgeable teachers in the history of falcons,hunting and watching Diego do his bird things. Well worth the trip to the Yuba Sutter Area for this over the top experience. We are still talking about it to friends.

I picked up a half off deal as a Christmas present for the Basic Falconry 1 class. I purchased one for myself and another as a gift for my mom. We finally got a chance to visit April 27, 2013. The location of West Coast Falconry is gorgeous...a few miles outside the town of Marysville. They have a great view... More

Holding a raptor like Don Diego or Draga is something everyone should experience; making eye contact while they sit on your glove is a thrilling experience. We'll be bringing family and friends, this should be at the top of everyone's list. The instructors are the best and make it a lot of fun.
