    ebird lumps audio with photos and simply calls it media. I have no problem with sound in this thread or the general topic for that matter. Both sound and sight help us understand birds and birding.

    This is a valid point. Maybe the forum should be renamed “Media Sharing and Discussion?”

    To me this means in this thread you can “discuss” rare bird sightings. If that’s true, then audio should be fine. I’m not trying to be annoying here because it’s really not a huge deal to me lol 

    I read it as discussing photos. General discussion belongs elsewhere. The description of the forum is as follows...

    "Upload your photos, tell the stories behind them, get comments and discuss with others. Not for getting identification help."

    However, the title of this thread is “Rare birds”. Nothing in this thread ever said(correct me if I’m wrong), that you can’t post audio recordings. To me, a rare bird documented by any kind can be shared in a thread called “rare birds” that doesn’t say you can only post photos. 

    I disagree. The thread/sub-thread is called “Rare Birds” but it’s in the forum entitled “Photo Sharing and Discussion.”

    Because the majority of stuff reported in this topic are photos. If it were in the other forum that would mean  less photos are shared here, which I agree isn’t true. However, to me you can still post anything that’s a rare bird in here. It’s simply in this forum because there are often photos shared.

    Sorry, I don't really understand what you are saying here.

    I'm not too bothered by audio in this section of the forum, but the title is Photo Sharing and Discussion. I would reason that photos belong here and audio belongs in other sections. 

    Maybe the whole Rare Birds thread should be moved to General Birding Topics?

    I'm not trying to be picky, but why have categories and threads in the forum if people aren't expect to follow them?!

    Respectfully, I disagree. I feel the thread should be what it’s intended for: sightings of rare birds. To me that fits🤷‍♂️

    It’s in the photo sharing and discussion section of the forum.
