Raptors mentioned on this site are given a 'Falconry Mark' (up to 5 stars) for their suitability as a falconry bird. This takes into account such things as temperament, ease of training/keeping, hunting ability etc and is only a guide to prospective falconers. As with all raptors read as much as you can on the subject, buy a video, join a good club, go on a course, talk to experienced falconers, buy your falconry furniture/food in advance, make sure your aviary is built correctly for the bird you wish to keep, find a reputable breeder and THEN buy your bird.
