My name is Eric Edwards, I've been a fixture on falconry internet sites for longer than I'm proud to admit. I've been a falconer since 1992 and fly mostly small peregrines (Barbarys, Shaheens) and passage merlins.

I trained birds professionally for 5 years, setting up bird shows in the US, S. Africa & Australia.

I operate several falconry related websites,, and act as a moderator for a few Yahoo groups.

I am currently the SE Director for NAFA and the Gulf States Director for WRTC as well as the founder of the Florida Falconers' Association.

In addition to a passion for falconry I'm an avid fly fisherman (mostly saltwater, redfishing). I enjoy internet discussion groups and look forward to participating. And you can find my newly created blog at
