Share Your Best Photo of the Day

Recommended Posts


Humbug, Whatbird compressed that alot. It is sharper than it appears here!

I'll teach you something that saves space in your upload quota for WhatBird but still displays the full file. You need to have the photo uploaded to eBird first. Open the separate Macaulay Library link. Click and hold on the picture as you drag it up to the top so that it opens in a separate tab. Then copy the link of the new photo into WhatBird's "Insert image from URL" box.

So the link for your red-breasted nuthatch picture looks like this. https://cdn.download.ams.birds.cornell.edu/api/v1/asset/313594961/2400?__hstc=264660688.908b83db6a082340e81ceaac5c15853a.1612404792820.1614892009639.1614899974711.92&__hssc=264660688.19.1614898835167&__hsfp=1895085607#_ga=2.46863076.2139383707.1614731539-1012602410.1614731539

Thanks so much! LIKE LIKE LIKE. Man, this helps a lot. Previously I had tried their embedded link, which didn't work well.



Wow, that's quite the difference! I'll definitely be using that strategy @Jefferson Shank! May not help much, but...
