Announcing the Shut Down of Kfalconcam Group

Tuesday, October 13th, 2020

Yahoo is shutting down Yahoo Groups on December 15, 2020. This includes the Kfalconcam group started in 2002 by Mountain Woman. Some longtime falcon watchers still receive Rfalconcam Forum posts via email through the Rfalconcam-Kfalconcam connection that was established at the start of the Rfalconcam Forum in 2009. This will be discontinued when the Kfalconcam group is shut down.

Please note that the Rfalconcam Forum is not affected by this shutdown and will continue to be available at https://rfalconcam.com/forum/.

This is the message sent by Yahoo this morning:

Dear Yahoo Group Moderators and Members,

We launched Yahoo Groups 20 years ago to connect people around their shared interests. We helped our users navigate new towns, keep in touch with college friends, learn new skills, and most importantly, build connections they may have lost or never had in the first place. While we could not have been more proud of what we accomplished together, we are reaching out today with heavy hearts to let you know that we have decided to shut down Yahoo Groups on December 15, 2020.

Yahoo Groups has seen a steady decline in usage over the last several years. Over that same period we’ve witnessed unprecedented levels of engagement across our properties as customers seek out premium, trustworthy content. To that end, we must sometimes make difficult decisions regarding products that no longer fit our long-term strategy as we hone our focus on other areas of the business.

Beginning December 15, 2020 the Yahoo Groups website will shut down and members will no longer be able to send or receive emails from Yahoo Groups. We’ve compiled a comprehensive FAQ here that includes alternative providers and information on how this will impact your group content.

Thank you for helping us build one of the earliest digital communities — we’re proud and honored to have forged countless connections over the last 20 years and played a small part in helping build your communities.

Sincerely,
The Yahoo Groups team

Upcoming Camera Replacement at the Times Square Building

Wednesday, October 7th, 2020

Weather permitting, this Thursday, October 8th, Camera 1 will be replaced with a new HD camera. Additionally, the other four cameras will be cleaned and adjusted, and the site will be inspected for damage.

The cameras at the Times Square building will be turned off during this procedure, which is expected to start at 8 am and be completed by 5 pm.

Upcoming Website Downtime

Sunday, August 16th, 2020

Our web hosting provider will be moving the server that runs our website to a new location Monday morning. Rfalconcam.com will be unavailable during the move. The interruption in service will start at approximately 4 AM EDT and last for 2 to 4 hours. Please note that streaming video channels will still be viewable on YouTube by entering “Rfalconcam Live” in the search box on the YouTube.com home page.

Upcoming Website Maintenance

Tuesday, April 14th, 2020

While things have slowed down a bit at the nest box, now might be a good time to do some website maintenance. Over the next few days, the server that runs the site will be upgraded. This will not affect the appearance of the site, but it may cause some interruptions in service. If this happens, try reloading the page you were viewing. You may also need to clear your browser cache or restart your browser. You can also watch our streaming video channels directly on YouTube by entering “Rfalconcam Live” in the search box on the YouTube.com home page.
