Have you ever wondered what it's like to feel the brush of a Harris's Hawk's feathers? Or watch owls dip and dive in the desert? Our popular program, Raptor Free Flight, is back and better than ever! You can watch as these amazing aerialists soar and swoop in their native desert home. The birds of prey that fly in the demonstrations are the following: Crested Caracara, Chihuahuan Ravens, Great Horned Owls, Ferruginous Hawks, Red-tailed Hawks, Peregrine Falcons, Gray Hawks, Barn Owls, and a family group of Harris’s Hawks. These winged wonders fly completely untethered – without any jesses or bracelets, providing guests with a truly authentic flight presentation. The show also features the only raptor species in the world that hunt as a family. Guests should arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the presentation times to allow time to park, enter, and walk to the presentation space. Raptor Free Flight is included with Museum admission.
