Falconry flying display
A wonderful 1 hour 30 minute falconry flying experience, held weekly within the magnificent luxury resort of La Corte Dell’Astore (literally translated as the court of the Goshawk) in Puglia’s most historic and visited town of Alberobello. The experience includes full commentary in English, a refreshment upon arrival (glass of prosecco, or non alcoholic beverage) plus a selection of Pugliese canapés.
You will experience the fastest creature known to man... the Peregrine Falcon, watch it as it soars and circles majestically then turns to stoop in an attempt to catch the lure expertly thrown and controlled in the air by the falconer.
We then move from falcon to hawk with falconry's most revered bird.. the Goshawk. We will explain it’s different hunting technique and you will witness it’s great power and speed. Then we will move to falconry’s most intelligent bird.. the Harris’s Hawk. This bird is unique as in the wild they actively hunt together in well coordinated packs both in the air and by foot on the ground. Marvel at its intelligence and versatility but don’t catch its eye!!!!!
Finally we end with a static display with our largest and most majestic bird the American Eagle. Here you will have a chance for a truly memorable photo opportunity alongside this amazing bird.
