One last question to the group before I post more pics...what is the standard for photos here? I have some poor but diagnostic photos of birds such as Gunnison Sage-Grouse and Five-striped Sparrow. But, there are some great photos on here and the majority are generally of high quality.  Since I got my nee camera, my photographic expectations are much higher, but my questions is about whether this list prioritizes getting the most species possible, or is the attempt to have generally decent pics (good or better, versus simply "diagnostic")? 

Thanks.

As the person who set this up, I had no problem with bad photos. If you post, I suggest you put up your best of the species. If it is something rarer, and it is some digibin, I say it's fine.

Oh, good, thanks! I've been trying to only post decent quality photos but I have a photo of a Vaux's Swift that  is positively horrible but the awesome folks here at Whatbird were able to identify it. I've hesitated to post it tho hoping that someone else has a better shot however if it comes down to it I will post my horrendous shot anyway for the sake of the species. ?

Thanks for noticing that. So,the list from that point [#458] down needs to be shifted one number up...so #474 is next. And, Sanderling is already on the list at #305. ?

@chipperatl #458 is actually a Sanderling

Thank you.  Not sure how I messed that one up.

Pine Warbler was already added (#513) so next one up should be #526.

Actually, #527 is up next...there were two entries with the same number 524  Northern Parula and 
524 Swainson's Hawk. ?

It was too late to edit my post when I noticed that Pine Warbler had already been done, so I numbered Swainson's Hawk the same as the Parula to fix it.

I should have explained it earlier.
