Birds Of Prey

Callaway Discovery Center

Callaway Gardens’ Birds of Prey program is presented with the permission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Since its debut in 2000, the program has helped educate more than 1 million visitors about man’s impact on raptors and other forms of wildlife. These magnificent creatures – which cannot be released into the wild, due either to injury or having developed an unnatural association with humans, known as “imprinting” – demonstrate their strength, speed and natural instincts in daily free-flighted shows. Several birds appear at each show, swooping overhead and giving guests an up-close look “on the glove,” while our raptor experts explain how man’s actions affect their wellbeing.

2016 SHOW TIMES

*For the safety of both our guests and our raptors, auditorium doors must be closed promptly at showtime and late arrivals may not enter.

**Outdoor shows are subject to move indoors in the event of inclement or extreme weather conditions. With the exception of service animals, pets are not permitted in the Discovery Amphitheater area.
