American Hawkeye Live birds of Prey and Falconry School in Ellicottville, New York.

Spring 2020

Hello spring!

After a longggggg winter, we are hopeful it will stop snowing.  Today (May 9, 2020 it is still snowing in western NY)!  Sooner or later it will feel like spring weather and we can enjoy flying our birds in the warm sunshine! We are excited to welcome some new baby raptors to our flock as well as the older birds who are also looking forward to nicer weather.

If you’re a nature enthusiast, bird nerd, photographer or hunter we have several different experiences for you!  Our school can accommodate a single guest or host your next corporate event with us.  From now until spring we will be located at Holiday Valley’s tubing hill.  This is the perfect location for our birds to fly and for you to experience all of the winter time outdoor activities our beautiful town Of Ellicottville NY has to offer!  Our most popular experiences are; the night time “owl encounters” and daytime “hawk walks”  These are guided nature hikes with our raptors and both can be done on cross country skis or snowshoes!  You can easily book your adventure by clicking  the “book now” button at the top of the this homepage.  If you have a party or other event planned we can also come to you, entertain and educate your guest.  Planning a wedding or marriage proposal this year?  Have you ever thought about how awesome it would be to have a Bird of prey deliver the ring Harry Potter style?  Lastly, if you are a property owner and are experiencing damage to your property caused by nuisance wildlife ( mainly birds such as; Geese, Starlings, Pigeons and Gulls), you may want to look into our falconry based bird abatement services.  This is a very effective and Eco-friendly way to chase away unwanted pests.    If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact us any time!  Please enjoy our site and have a happy and safe spring/summer season!
