FALCONERS CLUB
 
 

Falconers have a long history of being involved in the Conservation of Raptors in Saskatchewan. The SFC is proud to carry on this work working alongside other conservation operations such as the Provinces Permitted Bird Banders. Through this work a lot of useful information is gathered about the nesting and feeding habits of different Raptorial species in particular the Prairie falcon.

In the pictures you will see one of the Permitted Bird Banders rapelling to the nest hole of a Prairie falcon and attaching a lightweight aluminum band to the birds leg. The nest holes for the Prairie falcons collapse and degrade each year as the cliff faces in the valleys are eroded. The Clubs members are engaged in regular work restoring or providing new nest sites.
