Help / FAQ

This page will eventually become a list of answers to frequently-asked-questions and other helpful information.

How do I Add an Image or Sound to the Site?

  • Make sure you have registered and are logged in.
  • If you don't know what the bird is, surf to ID Request and then click "Add New Media File at this Level". Complete the form and submit it, and your image/sound will appear on that page.
  • If you know what the bird is, find it in the taxonomy tree by clicking Browse Taxonomy or using the Search (check the taxonomy box). Then complete the form and submit it.

What if the Bird is not in the Taxonomy or my Location is not in the List?

For now, contact me and I'll be happy to add it to the list. In the meantime, you can put your image/sound as far down in the taxonomy or location list as is accurate for your bird.
