Default Laser training a hawk

Hey everyone,

I am training a hawk to target to a laser and I was wondering which one I should be looking at. I don't want it to be too strong, but the dot MUST be visible in daylight from considerable distances away. Is this something that is even possible? I've been looking at 5mw green lasers and was wondering if something like this would work. My work is paying for it, so it really can't be expensive at all (the general consensus is any walmart laser will work just fine, which I know is not the case). Any help is appreciated!

i think your first bit of research should be looking into what colors hawks can see the best...

They can see into the UV spectrum and since they're closest to reptiles, they could potentially have a harder time seeing red colors.

I think the mW It would require to shine a dot on a per mile scale your thinking would be at the risk of the hawk getting a eye hit, and I'm not sure how sensitive there eyes are to light but I'm sure it's not good. And it would cost a small gold mine.

The "You must see in day light" Part is making it almost impossible to do. Why not use a mirror and reflect the sun to a spot?

How far are you trying to do this? whats the point and goal so others can help you better

Why don't you just spend the 20~30$ and get each a 532nm and 405nm 50mW pen and see how it works out?

Can I get ones for that cheap? Im totally new to this laser thing and from what I've seen, there are TONS of lasers out there for sale. Many more than I could have imagined. As far as distance, maybe 40 ft? I don't know if that's even possible. I would like to point him up onto higher tree branches. Dont know what all is possible, just thought I'd ask the experts :0) thanks guys
