While some of our other Bids of Prey aren't built for Canadian winter, our owls will happily take over for a few months.
Originally scheduled for the end of November until the end of April - we yield to popular demand and continue to offer Hawkeye Owl Experiences, where you'll get up close and personal with our owls. Put on a falconer's glove and fly an owl! Owl Experiences are held in groups of 6 at our 10-Acre facilities in Acton, just outside of Toronto.
If you are a fan of owls, you may already know 'Hoot', our Great Grey Owl and inofficial Ambassador of our Birds of Prey with his own blog :) You may also enjoy our Frequently Asked Questions about Owls »
Spend a magical hour with our magnificent owls, tour our mews, learn a little bit about each of the owl species here and Falconry in general... you are most welcome to take pictures and record video! We ask that you do not bring children under 5 years of age. Children 6 and older are welcome to participate at the regular rate, so long as they are accompanied by a paying adult. Dogs are not permitted on the property.
And, the pièce de résistance: Fly an Owl yourself at the end of your visit!
