Raptor Free Flight

Saturday, April 7 2018

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

Location: Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum
Time: 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM
2021 N Kinney Rd
Tucson, Arizona

The most extraordinary birds of prey exhibition in the United States!

Why this presentation is so impressive …

The birds fly so close you can feel the brush of feathers as they whiz by!
The birds fly completely untethered, without any jesses (leg straps) and most often without bracelets.
Presentations occur in the open desert, not in an amphitheater!
It features the only raptor species in the world that hunt as a family using strategy, like wolves!
Only birds native to the Sonoran Desert region are flown in the demonstrations.
Different birds fly in each show (10 a.m. and 2 p.m.) so each show is unique.

Watch as these amazing aerialists soar and swoop in their native desert habitat while a narrator describes their attributes, habitats and behaviors.

Bring your cameras and get ready for some supercharged action!
