Birds of Prey

The rabbit is fast, and hides in the brush. You’ve already lost sight of it. Alone, you have no chance of catching it.  You cannot return to your hungry family without food. Luckily, you’ve got a secret weapon.

The partnership between birds and humans has an important and fascinating history. Beginning as a necessity, this unique hunting technique has grown into an artform. Full Flight will offer demonstrations throughout the both days of the Faire. This interactive show will include many different birds of prey, from owls to eagles, and a recreation of a 15th Century mounted hunt, where birds will be flown from horseback to catch a very 21st Century prey – a robot rabbit.

Don’t miss out on this soaring display of skill and the partnership between man and bird.
