Inspections, Facilities and Equipment


An applicant’s facilities shall be inspected and certified by the Department or a designated representative possessing knowledge of falconry facilities before a falconry license is issued. An inspection fee of $20.00 shall be assessed for an inspection of facilities and shall accompany an inspection request form from the falconer. A facilities inspection is required for all new falconry applicants, falconers from another state who have moved to Oregon and Oregon falconers with newly constructed facilities. The raptor housing facilities shall provide protection from adverse weather, predators, and disturbance. All facilities and equipment shall be maintained at or above the level approved and are subject to inspection by the Department or Oregon State Police at any time. Inspection of facilities may take place without warrant or notice but, unless prompted by emergency or other extenuating circumstances, shall be limited to regular and usual business hours, including weekends.


Temporary holding facilities may be used to transport or hold a raptor for not more than 30 consecutive days unless authorized by the Department (not to exceed 120 days). Temporary facilities shall contain a perch, be adequately ventilated, be sanitary and provide protection from adverse weather, predatory animals, domestic animals, extreme temperatures, wind and excessive disturbance.
