I am sorry, Scott. I do not mean a moral equivalence.
A possession ban only strengthens a no-take law. These
birds' status has been so marginal for a long time,
their protection has necessitated strong measures. I
do not revel in this prohibition. It is only making
the best of a bad situation. Of course, many hawks
today are recovered. But not all.
