Tagging photos is optional.

The queue has been cleared out and photos should appear without moderation now.

Please try and post only photos showing behaviors. There are a lot of "perching" birds which is fine but more distinct behaviors would be appreciated.

Backlog is cleared and some stats as of JUNE 18, 2012:

45,765 photos from 5,335 members

That is a lot to manage :)

Group Description

Four Quick Simple Rules
#1 - [OPTIONAL] Please try and tag photos with the behavior using SLB-behavior {example SLB-foraging}

#2 - Please do not include birds not really doing anything - We LOVE great bird photos but the point is to make this group stand out and display bird behaviors

#3 - No digitally altered photos!! Photo enhancement is OK (as in contrast, lightening, etc.) but no manipulation that changes the reality of the photo

#4 - Use your best judgement first on photos - this group has a lot of members and a lot of photos so it is hard with a limited number of moderators and admins to do all the work

**Thank you for being a member of an amazing (and large) bird behavior group**

Our goal is simple: Display the behaviors of birds through photographs.

There is currently a 2 picture per day posting limit which can be changed if necessary.

Feel free to tag your pictures with secretlifeofbirds and also any behavior(s) being displayed.
