Deprive of sight a creature of optical brain like birds has always been a very useful resource when unpleasant episodes of stress are caused by the required management of these species. Its use is indicated for the different aspects of the management and handling of these birds both in recovery centers during veterinary a treatment processes and the transport, as those involving countryside work capture, making biometrics, weighing and individual tagging. These leather hoods have covered birds falconry heads during centuries since its remote invention by Eastern falconers. Vaulted and spacious in the front to avoid irritate their eyes; they adapt perfectly well to each head of the raptor species. Its pampered craft development prevents light entrance through the seams which disturbs birds. His keepers facilitate an easy and quick placement and removal, while its wide entrances allow the bird to eat and return the pellets.
Thanks to the adaptation of different patterns of ancient hoods models, it has been possible to obtain a polyvalent hood, suitable for the use in different species of diurnal and nocturnal raptors. In this way Màquia puts these traditionally restricted hood to the handling of falconry birds for the service of management and conservation of populations of different species of Iberian raptors.
Custom made models
Therefore Màquia also offers the possibility of custom made hoods for the handling of any kind of ornithological species, ordering a model for a particular species to be designed from the biometry of the skull and the species specific characteristics.
