The New Jersey Falconry Club is proud to announce that our Guest Speaker for the 2022 Winter Field Meet will be Mr. Ed Pitcher!

Ed has been practicing falconry since 1969 & while he has flown many different species, medium sized falcons have always been his preference. In 2009, Ed & Ricardo Velarde, published their book, ?The Flying of Falcons?. Following a young falcon?s developmental sequence, Ed explains why he strives to allow his birds to progress through the natural stages in order to develop the confidence, initiative and abilities nature intended, without the falconer getting in the way. The result is a captive-reared falcon with the ?wild mind set? that flies and behaves and succeeds more like it?s wild counterpart.

Ed will be speaking about his current project, ?Managing Birds of Prey for Better Falconry?.
