If you keep a wild raptor you should only keep it until the spring and then release it. This was the tradition up until when captive bred falcons were available.

But mind you this is not a hobby as the birds require constant care and grooming. Some consider it a lifestyle it requires so much!

Yea, that's what you do with wild caught birds. Actually currently illegal in Canada, but they are considering restarting the tradition.
Before the little hoods were used, falconers would sew the bird's eye's shut during trips also (like needle/thread sew).

Last I knew, you had to go through an apprenticeship. You had to catch your own chick and raise it. Only then could you go on to get birds from others.

My cousin is a falconer, he has two red tail hawks both females in large backyard enclosures plus they get daily trainings which can be hours of mock hunting. Then during hunting season they hunt birds for real. They are both cool birds but they only like my cousin. If anyone else goes into their closures they will fly around to all their perches to keep away from you.

the Kestrel was one of the first birds to catch my attention and i did have dreams for falconry but it remained a dream. i seen the falconry vehichle on the airport a few times but they mostly used the noisy flares to ward off birds ie seagulls. i did hear the birds cry out a bit but never saw or found out which 2 birds they have.
