"John was the HIT OF THE WEEK at our Cub Scout Day Camp!  Having secured him with no references I was operating on sheer faith that his presentation would be adequate. And with 150 little boys I was unsure how it would all go.   I was concerned about the boys ability to listen respectfully as this was a crazy outdoor day camp program but John had such a great presence and air with the crowd - commanding, yet respectful of even the littlest wiggly ones. I felt like I was going to have to do a lot of crowd control to keep the boys back from him (and the birds) but he's such a powerful presence that the boys were super attentive and respectful. I must say that his presentation FAR EXCEEDED our expectations.  He arrived early, was well prepared and professional.  His presence with the crowd of  boys and nearly 50 adults was incredible.  
He came fully suited up, birds were calm and tolerant of the crowd.  He not only shared his talent with his birds but he shared the history and stories of falconry in a way that was so captivating. I've never seen our crowd so entranced and they were left wanting so much more!  We look forward to having him back for more in years to come."

The photo is me with Ladybird. She is a captive raised Eurasian Eagle Owl and is absolutely amazing! As a gift for my better half I got her a personal experience with John Prucich and a handful of his raptors.
I cannot recommend this opportunity enough to any and all. I have taught classes and private lessons a good chunk of my life and I must say John blew me away with his articulate, passionate, educational approach to our entire visit! Very patient and encouraging, John introduced us to three of his gorgeous raptors (Saker Falcon / Auger Buzzard (what the Seahawks use at the games) / and the Eagle Owl you see below).
For once I at a loss for words. This opportunity to get so close and learn so much about animals we would most likely never even see from a distance, let alone feed with my own two hands, is priceless! Whether you are 6 or 60 this experience is something to be cherished. John does everything from school programs to one on one meetings.
Please support those who are doing so much for the species that we are all responsible for!..."
