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