There’s Something WILD in the Air!

Watch raptors vigorously pursue mechanical quarry that demonstrate these birds of preys’ natural hunting ability

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.
