Fall Flights outdoor flight shows Boise Idaho

Experience the majesty of raptors in free flight!

Join us at The Peregrine Fund's World Center for Birds of Prey to see our education birds do what they do best -- FLY! Watch as they swoop and soar over your head to show off their amazing aerial skills. This is your best opportunity to get up-close to a hawk, falcon, vulture, or owl as they glide sometimes only inches above your head!

Our raptor trainers and education staff will showcase the natural flight behavior of birds of prey. Each 30 - 45 minute demonstration is narrated to help you learn about the exciting lives of these sky hunters! Children love the high-energy activity of the speeding falcons. Photographers will enjoy the opportunity to photograph the raptors as they fly within close proximity. Bird watchers will marvel to see some of the less common species such as the Aplomado Falcon. Whatever your reason, make sure you mark your calendar today so you don't miss out on one of Boise's favorite fall family traditions!
