No Snakemann, the male was caught when he was a passage by me and a Master Falconer. It is illegal to purchase, offer for sale, sell or barter any native raptor acquired from the wild in Oklahoma, and as far as I know none of us are breeding Red tails (my favorite) in Oklahoma and I do not feel like going through the import/export and breeder's facilities and the whole whatknot to buy one. Which it's not to hard on the population being we have to leave one individual animal of the genus Buteo in the nest and if you've been out in the field for more than one hour I've bet youve seen at least one specimen. (If you live where they are known to be.) So ya' know, can't be that bad.
