How to Share Your U.P. Bird Photos

The UPBirders photo album at the Grove Street photo-sharing site contains some great bird photos from 2005-2010, but we have not recently been active in posting photos there. We hope that you will continue to share your U.P. bird photos by posting them online yourself and sending a link to the Birdnet email list.

Since there are no attachments allowed on the Birdnet email list, many list participants share their photos by posting them to a public photo-sharing site. Then they send a message to the Birdnet with a link to the online photos. (See "How to Join Our Email List" above for more information about the Birdnet.) Anyone can easily create their own free photo gallery on a photo-sharing site. You can find a list of them at the end of the Wikipedia article at this link.
