Some of its history and practices will be discussed and presented at 2 points. M.
Hosted Today by Lorna McKinnon, director of the clinic at the Greenberg nature center Wildlife Museum in Scottsdale.
Miss McKinnon was an apprentice to the Falcons, became the general of the Falcons, and then became the first step of the owner of the Falcons.
Training and licensing is provided by state laws designed to protect birds.
While there are hundreds of Falcons across the country, at least 85 people in the state have been licensed since the Ministry of Environmental Protection officially acknowledged the campaign in 1977.
Miss McKinnon will be accompanied by Kimmi, a kestral Falcon adopted by the center as an orphan.
\"She flew on a creance or a long belt.
\"We will not let her fly freely because she is printed on humans and may be in trouble in the wild,\" said Miss McKinnon . \".
Kimmi is feeding mice, chickens in the hatchery and vitamins for this purpose.
In order to become an apprentice, Miss McKinnon must be taught by a master and then pass a written test of Falcon, game law, animal identification, and property taxes of 80% or more.
She was only allowed to have a kestral or a red-tail hawk.
A general or a falcon master can have two or three larger raptors.
According to George teidman, chief wildlife inspector at the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the eagle and Falcon are endangered species in the state and cannot be trapped.
Chuck Keane, a falcon master and a McKinnon teacher, said he was interested in the Falcon because he saw a Falcon bend at a speed of 150 miles per hour, kill it in another instant. It was a once-in-
But this is a daily phenomenon under the constraints of the Falcon. \'\'Mr.
Teidman says he thinks the Falcon is becoming more and more popular because \"it\'s a different thing, a talking thing.
\"Now that DDT is no longer used, the number of raptors is increasing.
Apprentice Falcon must be accompanied by the owner when going out to catch a shark or red
Their own tail.
\"They train through hunger, not intelligence or affection,\" said Miss McKinnon . \".
\"You can\'t shoot the bird in the head and say \'good Falcon \'.
Behavior changes based on food are effective.
\"The wrong approach may result in the loss of the license, sir.
Teidman says, like in the case of the Falcon, its birds get out of control and attack a little child.
\'I only know one such example,\' he said.
The state requires the Raptors to remain in a fence about the size of a horse stall.
Weighing scales, appropriate food, water and tether must be provided, all of which are subject to inspection by the national representative. Mr.
Keane, curator of Hudson Heights Museum, natural history and art facilities in Cornwall-on-
Hudson went to Wyoming to capture his Prairie Falcon and bought the bird for more than $1,500.
Trapped in the local kestral can cost about $250 a year.
Tickets for this project are $2.
The center is located on Dromore Road outside the center of Aevnue. Call 723-
