  1. @MerMaeve If I remember correctly from the thread on the old site, it's basically to try to show the Whatbird community's photographic life list. Has to be your photo and there shouldn't be repeats (i.e: you and I shouldn't both put a Glaucous-winged Gull), and that's basically it. It's cool to see how many species in the ABA area we collectively have managed to photograph.

    Yeah, I thought about your Australia trip report, which I greatly enjoyed. I know it represented a lot of work. It brought back some great memories of a similar trip my wife and I took. I still remember the smell on Heron Island. I think it was largely from the Noddy Terns. I meant to open up your report for my wife to read and I never got around to it. Now...:classic_sad:

    Yeah… just finished it too. As I said I still have the writeup itself saved, fortunately, and the photos (most downloaded onto Flickr and eBird as well. Also, if you wanted I could actually send you the writeup). When I was looking around the trip report section I also found the first pages of two other trip reports of mine, so at least I have those too. The Australia one was too recently published to have been saved though, I think. Not even sure how the archive thing completely works, to be honest, but it's cool to look around. 

    And yes, the noddies had quite the smell!

  5. My thoughts are likely very consistent with others - glad the website is back and that the administrators have worked so hard to restart it, but sentimental to the loss of so many posts. This forum helped me improve my ID skills so much and allowed for me to connect with a community of birders, including so many other young birders. I also agree that it would be awesome if some of the old posts could be brought back, but understand if that is virtually impossible.

    My thoughts are very much like JimBob's.

    I certainly haven't been as active here as I used to be, and I considered not rejoining.  However, I do still like to check in every once in a while, especially for trip reports.  I must say, I'll be really bummed if the old trip reports are lost.  Myself and many others have spent a lot of time creating those reports. 

    My trip reports were one of the first things I thought of too. I still have all of the writeups on my computer, but without the photos and everything included. I've spent some time browsing through some web archives, as I clearly have nothing better to do at the moment, and a few of yours have actually been saved.
