On our way back from the Grand Canyon, we saw a sign for this place. It’s called Raptor Ranch. We immediately thought dinosaurs. haha
We looked it up and learned it is a super cool place to learn about hawks and raptors.
This is Justin. Justin is a Harris hawk. We arrived in time to see his flight demo. Check out the video I took on YouTube: https://youtu.be/r8axOOf0r1s
After the demo, we were invited to hold a falcon (yes please!)… I am downloading photos of this and will share them separately. It was so amazing! (Yes, I’m giddy about this experience!)
If you’re in the area, it’s so worth the trip to see these magnificent animals and learn more about their abilities (flight speeds, how they hunt, etc.).
