Lesson 9: Duration on the Glove


In this lesson we will discuss how to train your bird to have duration on your glove.

  • A great reference book for equipment size and material is "Raptors in Captivity: Guidelines for Care and Management" by Lori Arent.
  • We've given examples of precursors to a bate, but every individual bird is different. Some show more signs of being uncomfortable and some show less.
  • Do not use the bird's jesses to pull them up after a bate, this makes the situation more stressful and it also can cause injuries to their ankles and legs.
