The day we met a bird named Diego!
Oct 2021 • Family
Took my grandchildren on the Raptor Experience last week. Falconers Amber and Brian were so friendly and very knowledgeable. They kept things fun and we learned a lot. We got to see three of the birds perform aerial maneuvers, first with the handlers. Then, we got to put on the gloves, to have the birds perch on our hands for rewards. Such a great way to get to see these magnificent birds up close. We got to spend two hours with the birds, just the four of us and our hosts Amber and Brian. They provided many opportunities for taking pictures with the birds. It was a most memorable experience.

A Party to Remember
Jul 2021
Thank you Kate and team for an incredible time. 45 guests were here for dinner with a surprise- and they were truly surprised! Everyone loved learning about the birds, having photos taken with them and even a game with Diego the Hawk flying to admiring guests in a circle with gloves on and directed by Maria and Amber. It was a party to remember thanks to West Coast Falconry! It is truly remarkable that you came to my home. What a fabulous experience!

Worth every penny
May 2021
It was so much fun going to West Coast Falconry, my group opted for the hawk walk and it was amazing doing a small hike and seeing their hawk Mariposa in action. Walking through the trees and holding an arm out for her to quickly perch on was like something out of medieval times. We had two falconers with the entire group of 5 guests.
Amber was so kind and funny with the hawk, who had so much personality that it really made an experience on paper seem so droll in comparison. The truth is being out there on there land with these amazing birds is something everyone should experience.
I left there, came home, and immediately booked another experience. These birds are shockingly light for some of there size. They are regal, prideful, hilarious. I learned so much from coming here and would urge others to attend as well.

Wonderful experience
Apr 2021
Everything that I was hoping for, learned a lot about falconry, and interacted with the birds in several way. Kate and staff were friendly, helpful and informative. I have been telling my friends about it, and telling them to do it.

Incredible experience with beautiful animals
Apr 2021
I was incredibly lucky to be the only person in my Falconry Experience class (3 hours), with two excellent staff members: Francie and Brian. They were knowledgeable, professional, and very easy to talk to and engage with. The animals were absolutely beautiful, and the opportunity to see them up close, hold them, watch them fly and hunt, and engage with them was truly special. I will remember this for the rest of my life, and would love to return in the future!

Highly Recommended Hawk Walk Experience!
Mar 2021
The hosts were fantastic; they were incredibly friendly, informative, and eager to answer any questions and ensure all participants were engaged and had a great time. Our hawk was amazing and completed dazzling feats of aerial acrobatics that are part of their natural hunting instincts. All the raptors appeared to be very healthy and well cared for, and the grounds and surrounding are were beautiful. I highly recommend this to any adult who loves birds of prey, and for children as an educations experience - all ages will be awed!

Great experience
Mar 2021 • Family
Our second time here, experiencing these great birds of prey. Francie and Sparky, our "hosts" were fantastic - they're informal (but well structured) approach, answering all our questions, storytelling, and adding levity where appropriate...made the day tremendous for our family. Oh...and the birds are magnificent . A real treat to be able to participate in...and learn so much about these raptors.
