If I lived someplace more appropriate for this kind of hawk, I believe I would trap one and try falconry with this largest of our North American buteos. They are stunning to look at, especially in their adult plumage. Unfortunately, they like wide open spaces, and I just don't have that here in Minnesota. I can dream though!
Here is a very professional video of a woman falconer who is living the dream.
