Group DescriptionHello from BirdWatching magazine!
We're the American bimonthly magazine about wild birds and birdwatching that the Los Angeles Times called "the next best thing to locking binocs on feathers."
We love birds, and we publish articles about how to attract them, how to identify them, where to travel to find them, and how to understand the amazing things they do -- anything that will make our readers better birdwatchers. We also publish columns by the best-known writers in the birdwatching industry -- David Allen Sibley, Kenn Kaufman, and Pete Dunne, among them -- as well as digests of the latest news from the world of ornithology and conservation, and lots and lots of beautiful photos of birds.
And that's why we formed this group -- because we are always looking for talented nature photographers and excellent photographs of birds to use on our website, on our blog, and maybe even in our magazine.
A request: If you add a photo to our pool, please tell us as much as you can about where and when you took the picture.
You can find BirdWatching (formerly Birder's World) on newsstands across the United States and in Canada, and you can find it online here:
Group RulesBy posting photos in our pool, you agree to release your photo for use on the BirdWatching website (BirdWatchingDaily.com).
You retain all rights.
All pictures will get attribution in the form of your Flickr user name. That name will get linked back to the source image on Flickr.
If you want to specify your attribution, please do so in your photo's description.
Do NOT digitally retouch your images to alter reality. Do not remove distracting elements such as foreground branches or clean up cluttered backgrounds. Do not add to the foreground or background. We are assuming that your digital image reflects what your camera recorded at the moment you made the picture.
We further expect photographers and writers to follow the Principles of Ethical Field Practices published by the North American Nature Photography Association and the Principles of Birding Ethics published by the American Birding Association.
Finally, we expect photographers to disclose fully if their images show captive birds or were obtained in controlled situations.
By posting, you agree to let us resize, crop, change brightness/contrast, etc., or otherwise adjust photos for publication, based on our aesthetic preferences, and using our editorial discretion.
