About Airstrike Bird Control, Inc.
Initially founded in 2002 by Master Falconer Brad Felger, Airstrike began to grow in 2009 with the addition of Master Falconer Fred Seaman. Airstrike provides services and consulting to land fill operations, vineyards and other agriculture, resorts, industrial parks and commercial locations. We have locations servicing the states of California, Oregon and Washington, with more service areas being added.
For centuries man and falcons have been partners. As far back as 4000 years ago, man and falcon cooperated to the benefit of both. Modern falconry is an extension of that long term relationship. United States falconers are licensed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and state Department of Fish and Game or Department of Wildlife to handle and train birds of prey.
Falconry based bird abatement
Using falconry based techniques, hawks and falcons are trained to chase and harass pest birds. The pest birds will leave the protected area when the decision is to eat or be eaten.
Brad Felger is a Master Falconer with over 40 years training birds of prey. Brad is a licensed bird of prey breeder and produces hawks and falcons through Central Coast Falcons for use in modern falconry.
Fred Seaman is a Master Falconer with over 9 years experience training and flying birds of prey.
Our falconry based bird abatement staff are trained and licensed falconers, with a minimum two year apprenticeship, our staff have learned to understand the motivation of the pest birds and use falconry techniques to discourage pest birds searching for feeding and nesting opportunities.
