Review Bombing

I personally think it's a 5 star photo, but I can live with a 4. There is no way it's a 3 star pic.

I agree it is definitely not a 3 start photo, it is a very high 4 for me. If it was cropped in a little closer I would say five. 

By the way, I rated it five anyway.

It's not the world's best photo of a Ruff, but 3 stars?! This had 5 stars for along time and then must have gotten some really low votes. 🤷‍♂️

Yeah, it’s pretty stupid. There’s been a couple people going through and downrating everything on the front page or best of day photos for a long time now.

Rated it. Ben Lucking seems to be in the top photos a lot, I've noticed.

Taking a trip to south america and visiting a hummingbird feeder will do that to ya 😁

Yeah, South American hummingbirds are so great! Some really weird ones down there, from looking at eBird. Been to every continent except for Antarctica and South America, if you count New Zealand as part of Australasia.

No doubt at all that this is a 5. Rated it.

I was looking on google if other people had also had bad experiences about rating with ebird despite having good photos and it seems that I am not alone! I recently uploaded a bunch of Least Bittern photos to ebird and someone is descending my images with one star. It is quite difficult to recover from a bad rating of one star if only few people rate image and I hope ebird will find a solution for that in near future. For the moment, if some of you want to rate my Bittern images, they can be found on this list: https://ebird.org/checklist/S93851865 

Thanks,

Just rated them. Great photos, and welcome to Whatbird, @fredlelievre! This website also has other great forums you can use, including Help me Identify a North American Bird.

Absolutely awesome shots!  I've rated them all for you (got at least one back up to 5).
