Bird Snares
 For an overview of snares in general, see theRolling Snarepage.Here is a simple bird snare, attached to a bird feeder.The horizontal perch stick is loosely placed into a crack on the side of this bird feeder. Note the wedge-shaped end of the stick. It should beheld very loosely in the crack.A noose is placed over the horizontal stick. Note we have used muchthicker string in this case in order to illustrate the technique.When a bird perches on the horizontal stick, its weight will push thestick down, and the bird will be snared.

 Here is a second bird snare. The general principle is the same as theabove snare, except it is installed in an upright stick, and there is aweight attached to the snare loop.Again, a horizontal perch stick is loosely placed into a hole in thevertical larger stick. The noose goes through the hole as well, helping tohold the horizontal stick.When a bird lands on the horizontal stick, it dips down, and the weightof the rock as it drops towards the ground (no longer being held by theperch stick) quickly pulls the noose tight around the bird's legs. The birdis pulled tightly against the vertical stick and is held there.
