  3. I have shared my thoughts on a 2022 photo contest in the October Photo Competition thread and now it's time to share yours. I'd like see a fun and silly side to the contest so that we can all participate while still seeing who took the best shot of the year. The difficult question is, if we all want to participate, who's going to run the contest and who's going to judge it? If someone volunteers to run it, some possible categories could include... Best Photo of the year. Best pair of birds. Best in flight photo. Oddest bird deformity. Most birds on a single bird feeder. Most unusual pose. Funniest photo of the year. Best blurry but still identifiable and interesting photo. Worst background in a photo. Etc., etc.
  4. It gets even harder when you have to account for Whatbirder's migration patterns, which are literally all over the map. πŸ˜„
  5. I used the photographer's name to narrow down the range before guessing. πŸ˜‰

  8. I found this in Google's 'People also ask' section when I did a search. "Is Azurewebsites net Safe? Azurewebsites.net is an undesirable app of the software category known as browser hijackers. Azurewebsites.net gets attached to the main browser in the computer and starts to promote certain sites in it by automatically redirecting the user's traffic to those sites.Jul 29, 2020" User beware.

The mental challenge isn't much fun when you need a separate website to solve the puzzle for you more and more often because so many birds being selected aren't even listed in NA field guides. GRRRRR!!!!!

  11. Fun and silly categories will probably draw more participants than the best photo categories. πŸ‘ I might be being a little selfish here but let's face it, my skill, and my photo opportunities, can't compete against some of the great photographers on here, no matter how much money I invest in camera gear. I'll need those other categories just to have a chance of being in the game. πŸ™ƒ
  12. Typically, the barred tail feathers indicate a juvenile bird but I think there might be an exception to that with some western birds. I'm sure someone who knows their stuff will let us know if it's not a juvenile, which is what I'd call it until someone came along and corrected me.
  13. I posted my results before checking any lists or looking up the bird, but now that I know what bird it is, I am going to predict that a lot of people won't know the bird until they too check a list.

  19. If anyone is interested in organizing a 2022 photo contest, I'd like to participate so I don't want to run it but if someone else is up managing it, I have a few suggestions. Possible categories could include... Best Photo of the year. Best pair of birds. Best in flight photo. Oddest bird deformity. Most birds on a single bird feeder. Most unusual pose. Funniest photo of the year. Best blurry but still identifiable and interesting photo. Worst background in a photo. Etc., etc., I'm sure others will offer possible categories but I'd suggest limiting it to 5 or 6 categories. I'd also suggest that all photos be uploaded to the organizer in a PM so that all photos are viewed in the same Whatbird format with the same size restrictions and, unfortunately, the same quality degradation. Once the organizer receives an entry, the photo(s) could then be put in an Album(s) in the Gallery that the organizer would create. If I'm not mistaken, that would make all the photos anonymous, as they would all appear under the organizer's name for viewing without any connection to the photographers. I'm not familiar with the workings of the Gallery so @Kevin or @aveschapinas, or someone that knows this stuff may want to verify that. Depending on how the October contest went on the organizing and judging side, I'm sure there will be other ideas on how to best organize an end of the year contest. Just thinking out loud again.

  23. The good news is, upon first glance, it doesn't look like there's been any spammers the past 2 days.
