Falcon, Prairie w/ snare

I was out to the Promontary Mountains yesterday, photographing Burrowing and Short-eared Owls. I saw four Prairie Falcons one appears to have snare on it's legs. I first thought they were falconer's "jess's" but on closer inspection believe they are some kind of snare. They made a metalic "clinking' sound when he flew.
