Now on eBay

19 postcards created by Lou for only $9.99 plus shipping and handling.

This is a set of 4"x 6" postcard-sized composite prints of the Rochester Falcons, including Mariah, Kaver, and all offspring from 2005 to 2008.  Designed by local falcon watcher, Lou Capuano, these postcards include a picture of each of the seventeen juvenile peregrine falcons after they had fledged from the nest box atop the Kodak Office building and were flying free in the surrounding area.  Each postcard includes the falcon's name using the text color of the band that the falcons were given when they were eyases and a quote or poem that relates to their name.  Lou later developed Mariah and Kaver postcards which are also included in this set!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110588820839

This is not an auction. You can buy a set now for only $9.99!

100% of the final sale price will go to Genesee Valley Audubon Society to support Rfalconcam.

Can these be purchased directly from rfalconcam with a personal check? I know KathyO has collected payment for things from the local watchers downtown before.  happy

eBay only accepts Paypal. There may be a way to buy a set directly from Rfalconcam, but I don't have that information.

Yeah, I kinda figured that. My Paypal acct was hacked, I won't use it again. If there's another way....I'm in!

Two already purchased over on the Ebay site!  I've seen the whole set of these postcards and you will not be sorry you purchased them.  Lou did a wonderful job picking out beautiful quotes for each of "our" falcons, to go along with his pictures.

Thanks everyone!

Carol - Please relay to the Merchandising Committee the apprehension of some to be on eBay and use PayPal. 

I have a friend who suggested getting a PayPal account linked to a completely separate savings or checking account, and she only keeps a limited amount of money in that account for PayPal purchases only. She places money in that account only when she is interested in bidding on something of interest.  This way it does not jeopardize any of her other credit account information, and she maintains control of what she purchases.

I may do that, because I've felt left out of not being able to bid on any of the rfalconcam items. I am still apprehensive about how secure is secure with online shopping - - especially when you hear that retail accounts have been hacked into and customer credit cards and personal information are at risk.
