Red-tailed hawks, Ezra and Big Red, start family on light post near Lynah. See Bird Cam at CU Ornithology Lab.

I like the way you titled the thread "Falconry" to justify inclusion in the "Other Sports" forum.

BR, EZ and their family were immensely entertaining last year and they are off to a good start this year as well. I think it is wonderful that the first two eggs hatched on Earth Day.

And in other news, BR and Ez are back and sitting on three eggs again this year. When on campus check out their home at the top of the light pole just east of Weill Hall. Or from anywhere in the world visit them 24/7 on the hawk cam: hawk cam

Don't tell the falconers about them. They're allowed to capture wild birds for personal use.

True if they are licensed to do so and have the required permits. BR and Ez are also banded as part of a research project so off limits to licensed falconers.

The ethical ones, anyway.

This winter, we had an incident down here where a "falconer" trespassed on private property in order to try and capture a snowy owl. It was already banded and also fitted with a satellite transmitter - also part of a research project. Several birders informed him of those facts, but he shrugged them off. It caused a major kerfuffle in birding circles.
