An Owl Prowl with Falcon Flight Experience allows you to get an up close and personal encounter with not only owls but also with our falcon. Even in sunny San Diego, our highly trained free-flying owls provide an amazing insight into the world of this iconic predator.
We have several owls on our team! A spectacled owl, Ripley, a Eurasian Eagle Owl, Guinness, a Barn Owl, Beatrix, a Burrowing Owl, Tina, and a Screech Owl, Nigel – all demonstrate the unmatched adaptations of owls.
ABI trainers will show you how to catch an owl on the glove, and you get the chance to be face-to-face with an owl in this Experience. While owls are not the most common birds of prey used for falconry, falconers have used them with varying degrees of success, as they are such effective predators. End the experience with a fast-paced falcon flight! Our Saker Falcon, Halley, will show off her amazing skills and tricks to catch the lure. Once finished get an up-close look by holding her on the glove.
Each of our tours includes a full farm visit. Explore with us how conservation and agriculture come together in unique ways all across the planet for a more sustainable future. We employ permaculture techniques here at our farm for all of the animals and native wildlife of the Southern California chaparral to work together. Check out the wonderful fruits of the ABI Farm, our pollinators, friendly goats, pigs, and mini donkeys, as well as the rest of the free-flying bird crew of Avian Behavior International.
