Our culture is enriched by collecting materials connected with forests and their inhabitants as part of the broadly interpreted cultural role of forests. Products of material culture, resulting from contacts with forests, become objects for collectors, including philatelists. The paper presents an example of the combined interest of the author in ornithology and the subject of "world falcons". The systematics of the family Falconidae has been presented. The author discusses the role of philately in promoting falconer's traditions in Arab countries and the ways of presenting the image of falcons in the countries where bird species names are connected with country names (for instance, Mauritius, New Zealand). A list of countries which have issued stamps with falcons and the falcon species has been presented. Key words: stamp collecting, birds, falcons

About Us

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
