Private Falconry Experience: 100 XP
Experience the wild heart of Malta by getting up close and personal with 11 amazing birds of prey, which include a Maltese Falcon (Peregrine Falcon), a Harris Hawk, a Peregrine X Sayker Falcon, a Sparrow Hawk, a Pharaoh Eagle Owl and Barn Owls (Barbagann). Your host is 44-year old Lawrence, who fell in love with birds at a very young age. It all began from the moment he held a bird in his hand at four, a sparrow given to him by a neighbor while he was sitting on the doorstep. “I felt as if he had given me the world” Lawrence said. Lawrence spends most of his time working with his beloved birds at his cultural and educational display at Wied iz-Zurrieq. Join him and his birds of prey for a private display of the ancient craft of falconry, which includes a demonstration with five birds trained to fly and return.
