Our Skyhunters in Flight: Birds of Prey Demonstration was an Amazing Experience!

Over 120 adults and children came out to experience the informative, entertaining and action-oriented program that Master Falconer Brian Bradley and his live owls, hawks, and falcons put on Sunday, October 3, on the DCA front lawn.

“A great event from so many aspects. I loved “meeting” these beautiful birds, learning about how they are trained, and seeing them in action.” – Kathie

Just wanted to write a quick note to say how much we loved this event! So cool and catered to all ages. Was just the right amount of time and info for all! Thank you and look forward to more fun at the DCA.” – Kate 

Brian Bradley has been an animal trainer for over 20 years. His passion for the outdoors and birds of prey began at the age of 14, when he became an apprentice falconer. The love of raptors and a desire to educate others about these magnificent creatures led to the creation of his Skyhunters in Flight program.
