A pet Falcon?

Postby Laughing Hyena » Sun Mar 04, 2012 12:56 am

Can you really have a pet Falcon like the state farm commercial advertises? lol. Also while I was out driving today there was a car next to me with two people in it one was the driver obviously and the passenger had a Falcon or some sort of Hawk on his arm! It was all black and it looked more like a Hawk but I wasn't so sure what it was it was a bird of prey though. I wanted to ask a quick question while we were stopped at a long light but they had their windows closed and paid no attention to me whatsoever.

A federal permit is needed for native birds or a falconry permit. Exotic birds would depend on your state. So a falcon species that never lives or migrates through the USA naturally could be a pet by federal law.

I'm more leaning towards that it was a falconer's bird, just in that it's a more common scenario.

Oh and the one in the car you saw was probably a common black hawk.

Birds of prey cannot be acquired or kept as pets easily, at least the ones native to the US.
To get one that is native you have to study under a master falconer as an apprentice for years, pass the falconry exam and be licensed to have it. Then you would actually go out and trap a bird to hunt with.

You can however, have non-native raptors without a federal permit.

So yes, but keep in mind that many of these birds aren't affectionate. The people who work with them have to keep a partnership and keep things beneficial for the bird to come back, otherwise the bird will just fly off during a hunt. Which has happened many times.

That being said, the videos people have of pet owls are pretty cute. It would seem that owls are much more affectionate than other raptors.

I'd imagine the best way to keep them is to have a large aviary.
