Doug and I just wanted to thank you, Brian, and your awesome feathered friends, again for an incredible experience
I just want to let you know that the falcon experience meant so much to me. It was truly an emotional event that would have topped my bucket list if I had known how wonderful it was. I would like to come back and see you another time (or so) when you have time for a visit and a tea. Seth is a great kid….what a beautiful young man. Hope to see you again… – Suzanna van Galen
What an experience today, thank you again!! Just wanted to say that we had a great time meeting your birds and seeing them in action. The falcons and hawk are beautiful creatures, and you are so patient and caring towards them. Not to mention, patient with the students!”
Joanne Bentley and her crew are an incredibly professional, passionate and knowledgeable team who share their remarkable love and care for birds of prey. The raptors themselves are incredibly well trained and are the stars of the show. It is immediately obvious that attention and care of their feathered wards is what they know best…. An experience with Joanne and her birds is guaranteed to leave you filled with respect and inspired to appreciate these magnificent animals. – Tim Larson (Summer …
Hi Jo, …There were so many photo ops in the time that you gave us it was hard to pick just two. The videos I took really do give people a sense of w hat you were trying to achieve – having people connect to the soul of the bird rather than viewing them superficially. Thanks again for sharing your passion and love of falcons with us. Cheers, – Carol and Doug Cannon

We really felt like we were out for a beautiful nature walk with friends and I just happened to have one of the noblest creatures in the world on my arm.
Hey Joanne, Thanks for the day with your feathered friends! You are amazing… Wish we could’ve received a print-out on each of the birds – so much information on them its hard to remember everything. You are a fantastic teacher – such passion! – Tom Cook
Thanks so much for your kindness, time and teaching with Kes – She hasn’t stopped talking about you, Seth, Sabre, Jarih, and Mohave (the latter 3 whom she now views as people in their own right) since we returned. These experiences have been transformative, and her depth of knowledge around these birds is really extraordinary now, especially for a 12 year old. Thanks so much for all your work with Kes. – Doug Cohen
Hello Joanne! I wanted to thank you again for being such an awesome instructor the past two days. I had no experience whatsoever with birds of prey, so you really gave me a great introduction to raptors with plenty of information to digest. Not to mention it was a lot of fun! Working with all of you was great, and I hope I can get in touch the next time I’m in the Cowichan area. 🙂 Thank you so much!
