We will start off first with an introduction to get to know your host, the Laurel Fork Falconer, master class falconer Collin Waybright, and how this passion was ignited. Along the way you will learn about the ancient sport of falconry, how it works, how to get started and train and what goes into caring for and working with Raptors and keeping them healthy when in captivity as you meet the birds he works with. You will also learn the natural history of birds of prey, their ecology and how these amazing birds contribute to their habitat. There will be ample opportunities to capture unique photographs with the falconer and birds.

This area is so unique and so was this experience. Collin and Tiffany were so kind and welcoming! Collin answered any and all questions about being a falconer and we took a walk as the hawk glided in and out through the trees around us. It was unique and a lovely experience.
