Just wanted to introduce myself to the group. I have been lurking on the forum for a couple of months now. You guys sound like a great group and I have enjoyed and learned alot from the topics across the board.

My name is Eric and I live here in southern California. I will be taking the state test at the end of the month. My primary interests are in the evolution and ecology of snakes. I have been studying two species of rattlesnakes using radio-telemetry for the past 5 years in a local state park. This research will be the backbone of my dissertation.

I have always had an interest in falconry but never the time to pusrue it. Recently I hooked up with a local falconer who is now my sponsor. I recently completed the building of a mew, and I plan on working with a RT this season, assuming I pass my test. I look forward to interacting with you all here.
