|Moudry-traps Special live bird traps Many years experience with catching birds for ringing purposes|
In this case the spring traps are special live traps for catching different bird species. Trapped birds are tipped up by netting or cloth.
Simple circle spring traps anchored to the ground by wire hooks used to be used in the past, but square-shapped traps with solid bottom are now more common. Many bird species can be successfully caught by these spring traps in habitats where anchoring traditional spring traps is difficult.
