March 16 – Patrick Johnston, Falconer
Live birds will be present!
Patrick is the owner/founder of Frontier Bird Control. He has trained falcons and hawks for over 8 years and obtained his Master Falconer license. He holds a special purpose abatement license and uses native captive bred hawks and falcons to disperse nuisance birds for safety, health and cleanliness. Patrick also holds an AA Degree from the University of Northern Virginia.
In establishing Frontier Bird Control, Patrick has been able to provide a nonhazardous method to rid locations of nuisance birds. In turn, he offers an environmentally friendly solution by utilizing trained raptors that disrupt roosts in a series of controlled flights, forcing these pesky birds to find new homes.
Patrick has always envisioned an opportunity to use his art of training these majestic birds to become an established business that can give back to the community and help find a common ground for business owners, residents and other properties in need of his and his birds’ services. He is now able to bring this business to life and share his wealth of knowledge and expertise to those who need him most.
