I assume you're suppose to have a special license to be able to legally trap a falcon? Difficult to obtain? expensive? Not that I'm thinking of doing it, just wondering
Yes, you have to be licensed. It involves a written test, facilities and gear inspection, and a two year apprenticeship under another falconer, where you are restricted to certain birds and only one at a time.
Whoever asked, she has tape around her tail. Coops have delicate feathers. I have her tail temporarily taped to cut down on the risk of broken feathers during these early stages where she's still very scared.
