The person who takes the bird from the wild must report the take even if he or she promptly transfers the bird to another falconer. 4. If a falconer has a long-term or permanent physical impairment that prevents him/her from attending the capture of a species for falconry, a General or Master Falconer may capture the bird for the impaired falconer.
