About Wingmaster falconry

Denying access of unwanted pest birds from project sites, vineyards, and other locations.

We work to provide our clients with the most effective, natural, humane methods available for pest bird abatement. Our falcons, hawks and hazing canines are domestically propagated and hand-raised from birth for maximum bonding with falconers and handlers. The relationships we have with our animals are time tested and immensely reliable. Each is trained to perform his task and immediately return to the falconer for reward.

Our expert pest bird abatement services save millions of dollars in damage to crops, airplanes and public property. We eliminate sources of bird feces contamination and improve water quality by eliminating pest bird occupation. For ways we may best help with your pest bird abatement needs, please refer to our Services page.

Our services

We encourage pest birds to vacate “unnatural settings” and halt unnatural flock growth.

Wingmaster is licensed by the California Department of Fish and Game and the US Department of Fish and Wildlife Services. Our raptor propagation license ensures that all our birds are domestically raised and trained for the exclusive purpose of pest bird abatement.

Landfill / Transfer Stations, Airports & Military Bases
Our highly trained falconers, birds and partner hazing canines, work in trusting concert to place pest birds in a position of double jeopardy. Enhanced pressure quickly moves pest birds away from the treatment site to more suitable areas.
Farming & Crop Industries
Starlings are notorious pest birds costing farming hundreds of millions in crop damage and loss per year. The presence of our falcons mitigates that loss by discouraging the starlings from lingering in the crop growth area. Buds and berries are protected and crop yields and quality dramatically increase. Some examples of crops where falconry has been found most effective are: Blueberries, Table & Wine Grapes, and Cherries
Industrial Facilities, Refineries, Sports & Public Arenas
Falcons and hawks are naturally intuitive birds, and they can easily identify the “alpha bird” in a flock of pest birds. By pestering the alpha member, our expertly trained raptors immediately create results and the movement of pest flocks, modifying their behavior and encouraging flock dispersal and the desertion of the area.
