The nearly 3 hour class was amazing and entailed: biology, history, governmental policy, cultural heritage and live demo's with the birds.
Our son was in heaven. He's only 12 but has talked off and on through the last few years about career in working with birds whether it be at a zoo, in conservation efforts or even running a bird rescue. He soaks up any information about birds he can.
There were so many awesome classes and events offered, next year we have plans to make several trips up to join in on many more events-
Science Festival - Flagstaff
Beautiful day for a beautiful drive to the mountains.
The group that put on the Falconry/Raptor class -
International Raptor and Falconry Center
They brought in 3 birds - Finley, Kieran and Coral. A kestrel and two Harris hawks.
Meet the Birds
Kieran and Coral
We didn't take too many photos but just enjoyed the experience, learning and seeing the beautiful birds. Our son said it was a great day and he definitely wants to explore learning more and even wants to start saving part of his allowance to donate to help the facility, and the birds.
