I'm trying out Dropbox to avoid losing quality (not that these are super high-quality, but...)

I understand your reasoning for not posting your photos directly to Whatbird, the quality lost in upload is very disappointing. I'm not sure you're going to get a lot of views if you use a third party link like dropbox though. While I may click on a link now and then, I am not going to download every photo to my computer that someone else posts just so I can see their photos in an uncompressed state. Much like the links to ebird that some people have started using, if all that is posted is a link to photos, chances are I am not going to see those photos. Like I said, I will click on a link to see a photo once in a while, but I skip right past the majority of links to third party websites. I don't believe I am the only one that prefers to see the photos posted here instead of clicking on a link, so be aware that your links might not get much exposure.

I have never used Dropbox.  I can tell you about Flickr where I am known as austexican718.


I have 3715 images posted on Flickr for which I have received 2.3 million views.

If you post the image on Flickr and copy the link and insert the link in your Whatbird posting the image will display in your Whatbird posting.  If a Whatbird member clicks on the image in your Whatbird posting they will instantly be directed to the original image on Flickr.  

Flickr even has a group that is limited to members of Whatbird.

No. Body coloration below the stripes. Colorado would be significantly browner/yellower.

Do you think you could help me out with this chipmunk, this was in the Gallatin Mountains of Montana. It's either Yellow-pine, Unita or Least
