Hawks R Us.com

Welcome to Hawks R Us Blog,

Hawks R Us is a mobile bird of prey display company, consisting of British, European and American birds, ranging from Hawks, Owls and even a tame Raven.

We specialise in small social events such as Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Schools and Village Fates. Small flying displays and educational talks are available too, aswell as Hawk Walks with the inteligent Harris Hawk, or for the more daring why not fly the powerful Redtail Hawk.

For promotional work or themed parties we have Captain our Hedwig lookalike Harry Potter owl.

Crystal our silent flying Barn Owl is ideal for work with Children, Flying Indoors, Promotional Work and also Flying the Rings down the isle at Weddings or Civil Ceremonies.

WILSON OUR 20 WEEK OLD HARRIS

Well after only a few weeks of training wilson is now riding the thermals and waiting on nicely, he follows on well and moves really fast.
We have had 2 Harris given to us this week the female is a lovely bird, small but aggile, the male unfortunatly is disabled after flying into barbed wire a few seasons ago. He has a brilliant temprament and is a big big boy, so we are looking for a big big girl to pair up with him.
We are getting the birds ready for moving house hopfully end of next week??
