Skyhunters in Flight: Birds of Prey Demonstration Returned to the DCA!
Over 110 spectators came to the DCA in November for an up-close look at live owls, hawks, and falcons from around the world, with Master Falconer Brian Bradley and his wife, Teddy.
“We thoroughly enjoyed the Birds of Prey demonstration at the DCA. It was truly good fun for all ages. We learned a great deal. Bring them back again next year!” – Jon
Fun Fact from the Event:
Peregrine falcons are the fastest member of the animal kingdom. It’s no wonder, their bodies are built for speed. While cheetahs can run up to 70 mph on land, peregrine falcons can dive at a speed of over 200 mph – as fast as a Formula One racing car can drive.
Brian Bradley has been an animal trainer for over 20 years. The love of raptors and a desire to educate others about these magnificent creatures led to the creation of his Skyhunters in Flight program.

they are trained and seeing them in action.” – Kathie
