BOISE, Idaho — The Peregrine Fund started back in 1970 and this non-profit that has its world headquarters here in Idaho makes it their mission to protect birds of prey.

The World Center for Birds of Prey finished up another successful fall flights season as the last show was sold out, in fact several of their shows drew big crowds this year.

"It keeps getting bigger and more popular each year," said Curtis Evans a handler at the World Center for Birds of Prey. "Each year we are making adjustments to accommodate as many people as we can while preserving that intimate experience with these birds."

One of the main goals of the fall flights is to educate the public because the Peregrine Fund believes the more people that care about raptors the better chance they have of protecting these majestic birds.

The people we talked to told us they loved watching the falcons, hawks and owls soar just above their head.
