Minn. R., Part 6238.1600 - BANDING OR TAGGING OF RAPTORS

A. All propagated and wild raptors for falconry or propagation purposes must be banded according to federal regulations, except that banding applies to all raptor species and hybrid raptors. In addition to bands, a permittee may use International Organization for Standardization (ISO)-compliant microchips (134.2 kHz), but microchips must not be used alone unless the permittee provides documentation of health issues or injury that prevents the use of the bands on the raptor according to federal regulations.
B. Captive-bred nestlings must be banded with a numbered, seamless metal United States Fish and Wildlife Service band provided by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service or by the commissioner. The band is generally referred to as a propagation band.
C. Propagated raptors that have been transferred to another permit type or permittee or that have lost their propagation band and wild raptors must be banded with a permanent, nonreusable, numbered plastic United States Fish and Wildlife Service leg band supplied by the commissioner. The band is generally referred to as a falconry band.
D. Eagles must be banded with an eagle band provided by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service or by the commissioner. The band is generally referred to as an eagle band.
