A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

Even if you think you take crappy pictures, please join in. Those of you just reading the forum and not posting, this is your chance to join in and show off.

Nice shots Andy :up:

I'll try. Not too exciting, but this guy, though injured and now heading for raptor rehab, was very neat.

Nice capture! Welcome to the community. I see that you're in Seneca Falls. We don't have many members in my neck of the woods. Where were these photos taken? Which rehaber took the bird?

We live north of the thruway on Black Brook Rd. This guy was sitting at the edge of our yard. He went to someone up in Pennelville who specializes in raptors, don't know the name. The biologist at Montezuma arranged it, a volunteer picked him up yesterday evening.
