Nine cadets make up the academy’s falconry team, with four chosen each year to replace the graduating seniors. New cadet falconers begin training in January under upperclassman. Their daily duties include maintaining equipment in the facility, cleaning the mews, feeding the falcons, checking each bird’s health and weight and training them.
