The trickster who will outsmart your every move
This trickster will run circles around you if you’re not careful! Loon is a most beloved bird of both staff and visitors and has the most endearing charm about him. Falconers at the Centre are constantly kept on their toes, trying to stay one step ahead of him as he finds means and ways of procuring treats and attention. Puzzles and tasks are given to him daily, and we are often left reeling how quickly he learns and figures out how to defeat them, sometimes in a way we did not anticipate ourselves! Call in and ask our staff if you can see him complete some puzzles for yourself! Perhaps his greatest skill is the wide range of vocalisations he has perfected; he is definitely a better whistler than we could hope to be! They are incredibly bright birds, as a Gaelic proverb tells ‘There is wisdom in a raven’s head’; and we are sure Loon’s quick brain will leave you enchanted and a step behind.
