Jo! 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! Until soon, Anouk & Annette Jonker
Greetings Joanne, Thanks again for a truly remarkable afternoon. You, Joey and the Feathered Ones make an awesome team. All the best, – Robert & Liam
…Spending the morning with Joanne and her cast was spectacular, it was an honour to be given the choice of bird to take for a walk and I was impressed by the knowledge of her apprentices let alone Joanne herself. After feeding the birds and swapping stories of falcons and eagles we parted to get ready for a trip to a Scandinavian Festival. This too was an experience, working with Sabre and seeing how calm he was around crowds of people, not to forget Joanne demonstrating her sk ill not in fa…
Doug and I just wanted to thank you, Brian, and your awesome feathered friends, again for an incredible experience
Marc and I both had both eagerly anticipated the day and were so richly rewarded and humbled by the experience. Your passion, knowledge and love for Mo, Sabre and Jarih really shine through as you talk about and interact with them.
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
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!
Joanne was an absolute Godsend, and its fair to say she saved me a nervous breakdown. When it became clear we were not going to be fully set up by Friday my worst nightmare came true; then into the middle of it all stepped a calm,confident Canadian lady who, thankfully, took on this enormous and demanding role. A hot day, constant groups of children with no time for refreshment and endless questions would have sent the best of us packing. However, not only did Joanne cope with the groups – s…
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
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 …
