@Jefferson Shank -- good that you didn't put my BBPL shot as your profile picture :classic_wink::classic_unsure:

 

Jefferson stole some Audubon 2019 Top 100 shots for his profile pic and cover pic. Since my photo is also on that page, I was happy that he didn’t steal mine :classic_biggrin:

@akandula, Should I change my Profile Photo? I didn't know there was any rules on who took the Profile Picture.

Unless the image you're using is your own, you either need permission from the image owner or the image must be in the public domain.  That doesn't just apply to profile photos here, that's the law across the United States and across all media.

The Internet made it easy for some people to intentionally violate this law.  The Internet also made it easy for some content owners to willingly distribute their materials for free.  With the increase of both of these practices, many people have assumed all content on the Internet is free, unintentionally breaking the because they assumed what is common practice must be legal.

Please note that I'm NOT accusing you of intentional copyright violation.  I only want to point out how Internet users in general reached the point where they assume they can copy and paste at will.

I am off of crutches! I broke my leg Feb 4th, it was a 60 percent offset. I Had surgery on Feb 7th, (A plate and six screws.) And to day March 10th I am walking! Just 38 days!

YOUCH!! 🤐😬  Glad you are feeling better and can get out during spring migration!

No, it's actually the one of the Black-bellied Plover taking a bath. It's on the Audubon article. Jefferson didn't use my photo, but he almost did (since he used photos on that page), so I thought it was good enough for an understandable joke. But it wasn't, sadly.

I'm glad that you're feeling better!

Gorgeous photo!! ❤️

@Aveschapines, this is what happens when someone quotes from a quote instead of quoting the original content.

He let him get away!   I like all birds but starlings and house sparrows don't get much sympathy wasted on them from my quarter.  (OK,  I did let the house sparrows raise a family in my eves but the next season it was boarded up!)

Understood 🙁 Although I have never broken a bone my wife on the other hand has a permanent plate and screws in her wrist from being hit by a truck while biking and then broke her hip in a car wreck about 10 weeks before our wedding 🤕  I must say the MRIs of her head and neck would make a pretty good pfp though 😄

THAT’S IT!  I AM TURNING THIS FORUM AROUND AND WE’RE GOING HOME!  NO BIRDING FOR YOU!  TWO WEEKS!!  :classic_angry:

That sounds awfully Adult like for a young birder's forum. Are you sure you're young enough to still act like a kid? Oh wait, that's exactly what we're doing here, isn't it? 😁

All right everyone it is time to be serious, NO more ridiculousness! If everybody keeps posting in threes poor Aveschapines will be so busy deleting posts he might leave, and we would loose the greatest moderator ever. Now lets talk about something important! 

Now the difference between Eastern Screech-Owls and Western Screech-Owls...Now that sums it up, the difference between Screech-Owls is that one lives in the west and one lives in the east.

I doubt that  @Aveschapines would leave over some silliness arising from accidental hiccups in the forum, but SHE might leave if SHE keeps getting called a he. 😉
