In the famed wine region of Baja California is El Cielo Vineyard, which uses Harris's hawks to control the crow population. Learn more about these versatile raptors and their involvement in sustainable wine production on this interesting half-day adventure. Board a motorcoach for a 45-minute ride into the Guadalupe Valley, nestled among mountain ranges, olive trees and picturesque countryside. Upon arrival at the beautiful grounds, experience a falconry demonstration that honors centuries-old traditions and showcases the birds' exhilarating flight and return to the professional falconer. The Harris's hawk, with its tawny feathers and yellow legs, hunts in groups and is considered the most social raptor. The birds' intense eyesight allows them to spot prey from high in the sky, a useful skill employed by vineyards to naturally control the pesky crow population. After this unique experience, enjoy brunch in a beautiful garden setting. Return to port.
