Located 20 minutes southwest of downtown, this is an absolutely spectacular site. It appears that during certain times of the season, the birds actually are out and about--especially with demonstrations. But when we were there (late summer), most birds were confined to cages and pretty inanimate. There was one short demonstration inside--with a very knowledgeable guide. If you're into birds,... More

This place is outside of town and has a small number of displays. However, it is very interesting to see the birds, must of which were busy eating dead things while we were there. There was good education programs available, and I appreciate that they are using the facility to help the birds survive in the wild.

A great place to stop on the way across Idaho. Wonderful to see all the birds, especially the California Condor. Fun and educational. Learn about their valuable bird rescue and breeding efforts. Visited in June 2007.

Birds of Prey is really fascinating and was better than expected. One of our kiddo’s is obsessed with birds so we knew we needed to add this stop to our Boise tour. We got lucky and arrived during a tour so we were able to see the art gallery and the Arab exhibit, and have a volunteer walking the property... More

We were so skeptical as we drove out of town, up a hill and through a subdivision, but suddenly there it was. It was SO worth the meager admission fee, I would have paid more. You get to see well-cared-for, magnificent birds of prey - even get up close and personal during the live presentations. Wish we'd had longer, but... More

I was really impressed by this attraction. They have some wonderful birds & it's obvious that great care is taken with both the birds & the facility. Also, they are greatly involved with helping our wild birds that are threatened by extinction. Attended an informative presentation, that included a bird of prey who was very well-behaved! Enjoyable & interesting, thumbs... More

We went to 3 presentations and really enjoyed seeing the birds in big clean cages! The explanations and the falcon display was marvelous!

Looking for something to do for an hour+ we decided to head here. What a lovely facility! We all learned a lot - don't miss the archives of the Falconry. Who knew a place like this would exist in Boise?!
