Comments: Within the context of an educational and environmental presentation, they expert falconers demonstrate the qualities of the different birds of prey, the way they were used, their conservation in the wild and a study of their morphology, with information on the way that both diurnal and nocturnal species hunt. The demonstration includes falcons, vultures, owls and eagles, all of which have been raised in captive breeding programmes. The display can be seen three times a day, offering an interesting and entertaining interlude during your visit to the Park, which has been one of the pioneers in this kind of public demonstration in Aragon.
