I have now been involved in falconry since 2006, having been fortunate to meet “Didi”, who at the time was running a guesthouse in the Stillup, this is a side valley from Mayrhofen.
Didi himself was involved already in falconry for many years and was doing small shows for his guests with “Lanny” (Harris Hawk) “Icarus” (European Eagle Owl) and “Steppi” (Steppe Eagle).
I met him through doing guided walks with guests and stopped for the fantastic food there and to watch the show. On my first time meeting Didi, he put on a display for my guests on condition I would translate, we hit it off straightaway and from then on I became more involved in the displays to the point where Didi has fulfilled his dream.
We are both now working full time in the summer, doing daily flying displays, on top of the Ahorn mountain, at 2000mtrs in the “Adlerbühne”, Mayrhofens own bird of prey centre.
