Very cool bird for your first spotting on Noah - welcome to the Project. It will be nice if you can add the original photos at some point and we look forward to seeing your future spottings.

Okay, thank you. I will add more detail and put up originals when I can and I will try to replace the others sometime when I am on my laptop. SNWR stands for Shiawassee National Wildlife Refuge. I added that in the sighting description. Lots of good birds there:) thanks for the feedback.

Sue, we can accept these images at this point. We would love to see your finds! Many users do use their accounts here to help document their own sightings. If you would add a bit more information in the description section, it would help us to understand a bit more about your pictures.

It would be great if you could eventually replace these with the originals. They do make USB converters that might work with your iPAD (I use one for my Windows tablet that does not have a regular USB port), or perhaps if you get back to using your laptop. :-)

Just out of curiosity, what is snwr?

Just saw your link after reading your message again. Will take a look

Thanks. They are my pictures, I did not take them on my iPad, which doesn't have a USB. I took them on my camera. I rarely go on my laptop these days, so if this isn't allowed, I can stop posting. I can't find the FAQ section to check. I mainly wanted to document these sightings for myself and I was really excited about using it. I am a serious bird watcher. I think I misinterpreted the purpose of the app. Sorry.

Welcome to Project Noah, sues330! This is a great place to share photos you have taken of living organisms. If you have not done so already, please take a few minutes to read through the FAQ page. You will find guidelines for posting as well as some other general information on some of the features of the site.

I noticed that there is a frame and border on the images that you have posted. Are these your own photos? If so, please upload the original images here rather than photos of the photos.
