Trapping Kestrels is fun but can only be done with a trapping permit, and bird handling experience. Doing this without the proper licensing is illegal. Kestrels are the smallest North American falcons and thus, are very delicate and need to be handled with care when trapped. They are also very common, and have a great temperament for falconers. Beginners often train kestrels as their first hunting companions and hunt small birds, rodents, lizards and insects.
