ماذا ستفعل

Discover what it takes to become a falconer while holding a live bird of prey!

We will join Master Falconer Rodney Stotts at his five-acre raptor sanctuary in Laurel, Maryland, for a live demonstration of these amazing creatures.

First, Rodney will give us a quick tour of the historic property where he keeps his aviary. Along the way, we will meet a few of the birds and horses that now reside here. Then, it's raptor time! We will be awed by a hawk, marvel at the feathers of a falcon, and come face-to-face with a Eurasian Eagle-owl. This one-of-a-kind experience will allow you to meet, greet, and take pictures with the raptors that stalk our city.

Stotts has been featured in numerous newspaper profiles for his work rehabilitating injured birds of prey and working with at-risk youths. He partners with several non-profits, including the Earth Conservation Corps, STAND Foundation, and Wings Over America.

Hi. I’m Matt, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I’m a D.C.-area native who loves to discover new, hidden, and mysterious places. I am a journalist who tells the untold and forgotten stories that have made D.C. one of the greatest cities in the world. My work has been published in local and national media. I frequently appear on radio and television shows, including hosting “Hidden City” on WAMU, D.C.’s NPR affiliate. For two years, I’ve worked with Rodney Stutts and his aviary to offer this experience. You can catch me exploring D.C. neighborhoods, enjoying local restaurants, and talking with everyone I meet!

أين ستكون

Rodney's aviary is located at the Wings Over America site near the Capital Guardian Youth Challenge Academy. This land was once part of the Forest Haven facility, a one-time asylum for adults suffering from intellectual disabilities. It was officially closed in the early 1990s and converted into several schools specializing in helping students with academic challenges. This location can not be visited without permission.

Rodney was just incredible. Any time that I book an animal interaction experience I always have concerns that I may encounter animals that are not living a good life. Rodney loves these animals, he knows their individual personalities, he observes their body language for any cues of fatigue or distress. He answers all of the questions thrown at him with ease. He made us feel welcome in his very cool world and was abundantly aware of the gift he experiences in being able to develop a relationship with birds of prey. I was in awe of the beauty of the animals and of the time and effort that Rodney puts into conservation efforts. I walked away with a new sense of appreciation and knowledge. For fellow bird nerds, just book it now, you won't regret it!

I booked this experience because I wanted to get a little closer to a raptor and learn a bit about falconry. I definitely got that, and it was amazing to hold a Harris's hawk. Rodney runs the program and he is a genuinely caring, knowledgeable, and engaging person. I left feeling reconnected to nature and inspired to help my own community and environment. Highly recommended.

What an excellent opportunity to meet an exceptional human being and his raptors. The work Rodney is doing is amazing. His passion for the raptors and for the youths he works with and mentors is apparent. His animals are incredible. He is very patient with the visitors in the group, and ensures that everyone has a positive experience.
