Details Collin Waybright is the youngest General Falconer in the state of West Virginia. He started this adventure by trapping his first Red Tailed Hawk, Ace, from the wild when he was only 14 years old. He has trained an American Kestrel for the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh Pa, and is one of the youngest people in the US to work with a Bald Eagle. The Bald Eagle, Mr. Spectacular, is a non- releasable bird and is used for educational programs with The West Virginia Raptor Rehabilitation Center in Fairmont WV. Collin was homeschooled and graduated in 2018. He recently returned home, here to WV, after spending 10 months working at the Ararat Ridge Zoo located at the Ark Encounter in Williamstown Ky. Over 5 years’ experience gained working with the WVRRC and The Ararat Ridge Zoo, Collin has worked with a number of different birds including some that a raptor would consider lunch. Collin has a God given talent that amazes people when they see him working with birds. He can make it look almost effortless, although if you ask him, he will assure you that there is so much that goes into training a bird. He has a heart for conservation and strives to educate the public from a creation stand point.
