Owl Prowl and Macaw Free Flight
April 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$97.00 – $157.00
A bird lover’s combination with color and stunning beauty of parrots and owls! A unique experience with a boisterous crew of parrots that you can’t have just anywhere. We will share a short hike of the San Diego chaparral. Next your expert bird training guide will provide the opportunity to put a glove on your hand, a bird on your fist, and have a look at the bird at eye level while learning basic falconry husbandry & handling techniques. Once comfortable with handling the birds we will begin to practice calling the birds to the fist and rewarding the birds for their behavior. The owls in our Owl Prowl include Guinness the Eurasian Eagle Owl, Ripley the Spectacled Owl, and Beatrix the Barn Owl. There will be plenty of opportunity to take pictures and ask questions, and we will also take pictures for you if you want to enjoy them moment.
Next we break out the macaws and watch as they dive, swoop, and soar all around us. The parrots will meet us for an ocean view and a breeze to match. We get to take some pictures, interact with them and share some fun while taking in the rural countryside.
Each experience is interactive with our birds and includes a full aviary tour in which you get to learn about the farm, how agriculture and conservation can work together, and even hop a few birds on your hand and feed them. Learn about our commitment to sustainability with our permaculture farming techniques involving the animals in our care and connecting the ethos of preservation and compassion.
