The Canadian Raptor Conservancy performs live, Free-Flight Demonstrations across Canada at select events throughout the year. Demonstrations include birds that are trained for free flight, as each different bird is unique in its own appearance and flight styles. As each bird is flying, the handler/interpreter gives an educational commentary about each one.
