Wonderful history of falconery and a nice overview of Birds of Prey. The Archives of Falconrery are second to none, and the 30 minutes you are provided to see the insides of the building dedicated to the history of falconery and a special display of the art of falconery in the Middle East is amazing. Well worth 2 hours of... More

Although we enjoyed our visit here, there really isn't that much to see and do unless you catch one of the live bird demos and a guided tour. Very few birds to actually see and displays are interesting only if you are really into falconry. That being said, I'm glad we spent the time to drive the distance and experience... More

While visiting friends in Boise, they suggested a trip to the Birds of Prey center and I'm glad they did. There are a few outdoor exhibits with various raptors but they're set up in a way that makes getting good pictures difficult. The condor display was amazing and you have no idea how big these birds are until you're up... More

Nowhere else will you see a California Condor up close. These birds are being selectively bred here for purpose of being released into the wild. Lots of information about raptors with some beautiful home (imprinted) birds to be seen. There is an excellent guided tour of falconry artifacts. Activities are directed by dedicated and knowledgeable volunteers. Well worth the visit.

This is a very nice place to see the birds of prey. It is very educational and the had a lot of cool birds to see. Admission was very reasonable although I found the area somewhat small. It is a short drive from downtown and the visit can take 1-2 hours.

I would classify this as a small gem of an attraction for nature loving adults and children. On display was a pair of endangered Ca. condors as well as several other raptors, native and non native. A short live bird presentation was given and we got to see a screech owl on a tether. They rotate birds which are presented.... More

It is not a huge place so you can see fairly quickly or as slow as you want. Make sure when you go to see the bird showing. We got to see an almogado falcon. She was beautiful.

I thought this place might be interesting but I did not know how much I did not know about birds of prey. This facility is one of the best tours in the country but it is in a remote place. The amount of personal guidance and information is amazing. The tour includes demonstrations with static bird handling. Live outdoor presentations... More
