There are many ways you can find out the name of a unfamiliar bird you photographed. For an untrained and casual shooter, like many of us, asking the expert is probably the easiest. The question is then: where to find the experts?
It is easy!
- Join Flickr.com if you have not. It is completely free for basic members.
- Join the group called “Field Guide: Birds of the World“. Read the group rules.
- Post the photo of the bird in the “Bird ID help line” thread. Be polite and be patient, your question will likely be answered fairly quickly. You do not have to add the photo to the group pool (it will likely be removed if you do due to lack of bird ID and Latin name tags).
