Our flight demonstrations are an exciting means of educating our Grand Canyon, Arizona Raptor Ranch visitors about raptors as they demonstrate actual hunting and flying techniques used by these birds of prey in the wild.
 

 

There is no better way to instill a real appreciation of raptors, than to witness
these birds in flight.
Each demonstration includes detailed commentary designed to highlight
the main characteristics of the birds being flown.

Raptor Ranch developed a unique video camera attachment for falcons! This is a shot of
Lucy the Peregrine falcon at over 2000 feet and diving towards the ground at over 150 mph.

 

 
     

There's Something WILD in the Air!
Watch raptors vigorously pursue mechanical quarry that demonstrate
these bird of preys' natural hunting ability.
