this story from Montana is interesting. I helped Mark Nash a few years ago ,trying to stop this ,by sending a petition world wide.
what about our peregrines.

If a wild banded bird is caught, I believe they are required to notify the national banding office who I believe is suppose to notify the bander.  Since most states require a state permit (not sure if there is a national one required as well) to take falcons from the wild, I believe they (the state) has to be notified if a banded bird is taken as well.  Question I guess is how good is the reporting system ...

A falconer in the UK once told me that falconry birds stay because they decide to, not because they have to.  Not sure if that is just the way he approaches falconry but it does make a kind of sense ... but I'm not a falconer so its just anecdotal ...

I'm not sure about the notification part, but it was my understanding that they were not permitted to take chicks or juvies who are banded.

You probably know the legislation better than I do Alison, its something I always have on my "to do" list, but not "done" yet.  :-\

I am no expert on this -- I remember posting a story from another state earlier in the year, but can't find it now. It mentioned that taking banded birds was illegal.

Here is a link to the Montana regulations:

http://www.mtrules.org/Gateway/RuleNo.asp?RN=12.6.1112

A couple of quotes:

(2) No more than two raptors may be taken from the wild each calendar year to use in falconry.

(a) Take of peregrine falcons from the wild is limited to time periods specified by commission rules. Take is limited to permittees who have received a peregrine take permit from the department and the conditions associated with that permit.


And:

(e) A bird banded with a Federal Bird Banding Laboratory aluminum band may be taken from the wild except a banded peregrine falcon.
