Designation as a wild raptor.
Raptors removed from the wild for falconry are always considered wild taken raptors, no matter how long they are held in captivity or whether they are transferred to other permittees or permit types. For the purposes of the number of wild raptors a falconer may take in a year, a raptor is considered to be taken from the wild only by the person who originally captured it. This raptor will not count against that number for the subsequent falconers to whom it is legally transferred.
