When you get ready to start trapping your own Bird I may be able to help you with a trap site.

I don't know where you are at with your application, facilities, or obtaining a sponsor, but there are some very knowledgeable Falconers around.
You should be able to find some help when needed.

Good luck to you.
Thank you, Bill! I lived near Braddock Heights for a couple of years and boarded my horses in Middletown so I am familiar with the area. I was on the wrong side of the ridge (eastern, overlooking Frederick) to see any of the migration though.

Right now I'm in the research stage. I don't have the time to devote to a hawk of my own but I'd love to get out and watch others work or assist If I can.
