||Welcome to Ronin Air Falconry Service
Originating on the edge of the Santa Cruz Mountains
in Northern California, headquartered 7 years on North Padre Island in Texas,
we are presently back in SF Bay Area where it all began.; we specialize in
developing new cutting edge environmental bird control techniques
and conducting or improving existing ones. Our main objective and ambition is to
provide environmentally aware clients an eco mitigation alternative to the application
of toxic poisons / chemicals to even
the most extreme, severe pest bird infestations and complex of locations.
These poisons, both passive ( Avitrol " crazy corn ",etc
) and aggressive ( cyanide, arsenic, strychnine, etc. ) are often
illegal in many areas and have terrible secondary effects when entered
into the food chain. It was DDT and similar chemicals that nearly
wiped out the peregrine falcon and other raptors back in the 60's.
Even in the most controlled applications, surviving poisoned birds
are eaten by not only raptors but every type of predator causing death,
illness or sterility. By providing vineyards and the berry industry
in California Condor country , we offer agricultural clients a far
more effective alternative to shooting toxic lead shot at bird pests.
It is a proven fact that one or if not the main causes of death for
the newly reintroduced California Condors is eating previously wounded
dead, lead shot animals/ birds. By providing an even more effective
environmentally safe alternative is our greatest reward in conducting
our environmental programs.

Auger Hawk, RAFS lead starling "tackle"
ability to substantially increase worker safety by reducing or eliminating
bird feces bird feces have been confirmed to transmit up to 40 diseases
contagious to man. Histoplasmosis, cryptococcocus, meningitis, ecoli,
salmonella, parrot fever, Newcastle disease are just a few that
can cause serious illness and even death. Upon successful completion
of an immense program site no only is the work site cleaner and
safer but production and efficiency increases substantially due
to increased worker momentum and morale.
In just 5 years RAFS has developed 3 entirely new falconry bird
abatement techniques that had never been conducted before. #1 beach
water quality improvement with falconry: Arroyo Quemada Beach Santa
Barbara. #2 Massive crow flock (murders) abatement 25,000-75,000
crows: upstate New York townships. #3 Massive European starling
/ great tailed grackle flock abatement: industrial facilities &
refineries East Coast & Midwest. We excel at creating new successful
strategies for "impossible mission" bird control environments,
where the public and sometimes even the clients are skeptical of
possible success, and no other falconry service will attempt. In
addition to designing an integrated pest management strategy and
program at each new location, we offer clients our guarantee of
their program's integrity. By following our environmentally safe eco mitigation
procedures and with our scheduled visits 100% abatement may be achieved
in 2-4 years for even the worst case scenarios. Results are dramatic.
Each bird pest groups' populations diminish with each consecutive
yearly visits, having naturally relocated led by their alpha leaders
having triggered their hunter-hunted fear instinct. This natural
fear in inherent in all birds wild or domestic. This action is also known
to wildlife biologists as process moderation in avian species biophysical
feedback mechanism's. Due to their keen avian intelligence levels often the
greater the intellect of the species, say crows and geese, compared to
sparrows and starlings, the greater the abatement speed and effect can be.
Upon request RAFS offers educational raptor / falconry bird abatement
orientations for public, private, government, law enforcement, institutional,
church, school, fairs, parties, corporate, military, parks &
recreation, weddings and celebrations of any category. As scheduling
permits RAFS voluntarily presents programs to communities and charities
upon request. Presently we have falconers in Texas and California.
