Oh yeah!  Seven 5-star ratings as I compose this.  I'm new to Ebird and just figuring out the features.  How do you search for this?  Also, is there a public link that I can share that is available to non-Ebird members?

Go to the ebird homepage. That’s what shows up when you search ebird.org. 
 

Scroll down on that page untill you see it. You can click the arrows to move from page to page. Only a few get up there. It’s updated every hour, and your photo cannot stay up longer than 24 hours.

Found it - this public link works:

https://ebird.org/media/catalog?mediaType=p&regionCode=&dsu=1&taxaLocale=en_US&sort=rating_rank_desc

Is the only criteria the number of 5-star ratings, or something else like the number of views, or some committee?

To get a photo up there, it needs about 5-9 five star ratings. Once a photo gets up there, it is visible on the homepage, where a ton of people rate the images. Sometimes once a shot gets up, it can get to 70 plus ratings. Usually 20-50 though. Some four star photos that have a ton on ratings get up too. Unfortunately, some very rude people go through and rate all top photos as one star….

Thank you! It's not as good as many of the top photos, but this particular bird has been challenging to photograph. I'm happy with the looks I was able to get. Thanks again.

I don't see it. Is it just on the CA home page?

It was up a minute ago…..on the normal homepage. I guess the kestrel photo that’s up now took it down.

I got lucky. I was biking home from school wen I heard a few birds so I pished up a flock with those OATI, the HETH from yesterday and a few more to come (RCKI, TOWA etc.)

Nice! I can’t get a good shot of a titmouse, they’re always in bad light when they actually stay still.
