Catching your fist call bird is the difficult part, bait the trap with broken egg shells, meat scraps, even aluminum foil or mirrored glass can sometimes works too. Once caught transfer the bird to the decoy compartment.
You MUST provide the decoy bird with food, water, shelter, room to stretch its wings and you MUST inspect the trap at least every day.
The important factor with a Larsen or Corvid trap is that it uses a live decoy bird.
Larsen traps are best set during the run-up to the breeding season. and exploits the crow or magpie's strong territorial urges. A live magpie or crow placed in the largest compartment acts as a decoy, while the doors to the smaller chambers are propped open with collapsible perch triggers and baited with an egg or carrion. Incensed by the sight of a stranger, neighboring magpies come to investigate. They are caught when they alight on the split perch and trigger the sprung door.
