Live Shows and Programs
Here at Winged Ambassadors, we strive to make a show that is interesting, entertaining, and educational. We hope all of our guests leave our shows with more than they came with.
Along with our public appearances, we offer a variety of private events. We offer shows for both large and small groups. While large events with more people usually involve a show, smaller groups of people usually opt for one of our falconry experiences, like 'Hunting With Birds of Prey' or 'Ancient Art of Falconry'. See our options and info below and find what's right for your group or event.
We have two types of live bird shows, both ‘static’ and ‘flighted’. Static bird shows are ones without much, or any, flying. This show will mostly involve birds being handled by fist and/or on perches, which is great for photography and getting closer to the birds. These types of shows are perfect for venues with limited space. On the other hand, flighted shows will include birds flying and chasing after a lure. Flighted shows can also contain some static birds, if desired. While static shows are always possible, flighted shows require more space for the birds to be able to safely chase after the lure and properly demonstrate their abilities. As such, this type of show is generally more suited to an outdoor venue.
Both types of shows will contain facts about the birds, falconry, and the history of each. We use a wide variety of birds, including hawks, buzzards, hybrid falcons, falcons, vultures, eagles, eagle owls, and more. This page details some of the types of shows, events, and activities we offer and where we offer them. Please look around and find the excursion that’s right for you.

Winged Ambassadors can come to your local school or library to educate our young people on our beautiful wildlife!

Ancient Art of Falconry
Our guests have the chance to learn about the history of falconry, what equipment we use, weighing, feeding, housing and permitting of the birds. Guests will then have a chance to experience live handling, training, and flying of the birds. We will also walk you through lure flying one of our birds! Our program uses the Eurasian Eagle owl, and various falcons, including lanner falcons and saker-gyr falcon hybrids. Our participants will also get to see and learn more about many indiginous species of raptors.
This program is 4-5 hours long. Price is $300 for up to 4 participants. For more than 4 guests, there will be an additional $60 per person. Maximum number of participants is 10. All attendees must be 10 years or older to participate. This program is open all year, with the exception of major holidays and December 22nd through January 2nd. This event was made possible in part by our friends at Banning Mills. For more info or to arrange a date, please go here.
