Atlas Obscura Society D.C.: The Raptors of the Nation's Capital
Discover what it takes to become a falconer and experience holding a live bird of prey. Join Master Falconer Rodney Stotts at his five-acre raptor sanctuary in Laurel, Maryland for a live demonstration of these amazing creatures. Watch a falcon feeding. Be awed by a hawk. Come face-to-face with a Eurasian Eagle-owl. This unique opportunity will allow you to meet and interact with some of the hunters of the sky. Stotts has been featured in numerous newspaper profiles for his work getting at-risk youths involved with the rehabilitating of injured birds of prey. Stotts works with several non-profits, including the Earth Conservation Corps, STAND Foundation, and Wings Over America.
