Hi,

The How-to-use link gave me a 404 error, so I will state a couple of questions about the use of this forum.

I have used the regular Whatbird ID forum for some time.

I would love to use iBird Photo Sleuth, but I am an Android user.

I do regularly use iBird Pro for Android.  Does that qualify me to use this forum and--if so--would it be an advantage over the regular Whatbird forum?

Thanks

Sorry about that bad link to Google Drive, its now fixed. I guess this is what happens is when I don't have an editor check my work. 
This forum is made for responding to people who are using iBird Photo Sleuth. Eventually it will be tied into the app more directly but right now the forum opens in the app and makes it convenient if you are using Sleuth to submit a photo. We'll eventually port the app to Android.

How do I attach a photo? When I click on “insert other media” I do not get the option of using my photos on my phone!

Do you see where it says "Drag files here to attach, or choose files"?  It's in the same area as the "Insert other media" button.

Thanks, so I can answer, but not start a topic, correct?

It is for iBird users to get help on identifying birds. Only if you are a iBird Photo Sleuth customer and want help. There is no reason to start a new topic here unless you have the iBird app and have a question on one of its ID's or something. But yes, you can reply to the topics.

These birds are new to me (Connecticut).  They are completely brown.  Seen in my yard May-June timeframe. Larger than a sparrow, but smaller than a robin.  No song. Their behavior is distinctive: I put down grass seed.  Before I could cover it with straw, i noticed several of these birds as a group feed on the grass seed, but when they sensed danger the group dashed under a euonymus bush.  Danger passed.  They rushed out to feed.  Any ideas?

Nest t8me could you please try posting a new topic in the help me identify a North American bird forum, not in a previous topic? Thanks! And welcome to whatbird!
