Arapuka Bird Trap With Ted Baird

My brother Ted and I went out into the bush to practice making a couple primitive traps. In this video, my brother builds what we’ve seen called an Arapuka Bird Trap. The trap as seen here has South American origins and is documented as being created by the Guarani , but it is likely that similar devices have been used to catch birds in many other areas. Ted actually used cage traps to catch squirrels and birds as a kid. It’s a humane trap as it does not hurt the animal, and the animal can be safely released afterwards. I am not sure of legality of using it in all areas though.
This trap can be easily made with just the items you find or make in the forest.
