The Birdfreak Team has been using Flickr to post and organize photos since January of this year. By the end of May, we already had 1000 photos! They add up fast and we love how easy it is to put them on the blog or send them to people.
The Secret Life of Birds currently has 115 members, who have added some really great photos depicting bird behavior.
One photo shows a Swallow-tailed Kite carrying two frogs. Another shows a Ruffed Grouse drumming during a courtship display and one shows a Black Skimmer…well skimming!
Lots of different birds have been added so far, from Acorn Woodpeckers to Great Blue Herons to Saltmarsh Sharp-tailed Sparrows. There are hundreds of other great photos in this group showing off bird behavior.
Our other group, Birds as Art has 68 members and accepts all kinds of cool photos related to birds. Three Roseate Spoonbills in a row? Sure! A gorgeous banded Black-throated Blue? Of course! A perfectly perched Red-winged Blackbird? Absolutely!
Flickr is a great resource for finding tons of great birders and bird photos. Now if only the site would adopt a Flicker as its mascot….
