Falcon Aviaries at Cotswold Falconry 05/03/11

The aviaries for the single Red-footed Falcon and pair of Aplomado Falcons. The only viewing is through peepholes to avoid disturbing the birds. Peregrines, African Goshawks and Eurasian Sparrowhawks are among the species in similar aviaries.

      As I understand it, display-trained birds fly at the mesh when they see a human approaching and it is for this reason that most must remain tethered outside of flying displays. This type of housing would therefore improve their quality of life in some ways.

      As Maguari suggests these are aviaries for breeding birds. The African Goshawks, Aplomado and Peregrine Falcons are all currently sitting on eggs. The Sparrowhawks nest building.

      Weather a bird is trained for displays or not makes no odds as any bird will fly at the wire if something interested them or unsettles them. Depending on the speices or individual bird means that some will worse then others. Some birds are even flown out of avairys where as others are teathered. Having avairys of this design reduces alot of stresses and makes the bird feel more secure - making them more likely to breed, it also prevent the chicks from any early imprinting on people.
