That plus if you want to be civil and acknowledge others' comments on one of yours you have to go back through pages to find them. I don't think I'm going to post any more photos in serial threads. At least not the high volume ones. I will probably keep browsing through and hitting the like button as appropriate but will confine any posting of photos and comments to individual threads. This is supposed to be like fun, not work.-?

My 2 bobs worth.
I don't post a lot, but enjoy greatly the birds thread here and in flight ones.
I tend to comment on those as opposed to generally only 'like' individual threads.
I love the diversity and range of birds, attitudes, colours, sizes, you name it one gets on these (two) threads.

The two bird threads are my go to, wakeup in the morning enlightenment.
Much more interesting than a heap of stuff we are subject to these days.

It's getting to the point where it's almost impossible to keep up with this plus other threads, unless I spend half the day at the computer. I always enjoy commenting on the shots I really like, but I'm going to have to simply push the like button, and leave out more of the comments. I hate to do that. :-(

Using MQ instead of making a new post for every comment might save time for you. Following the thread would go faster for people like me, who enjoy bird images but don't post photos and seldom post comments, if some of the prolific commenters would use MQ. Many pages have more text posts (compliments + thank-yous + tips on locations, etc.) than photo posts.

You aren't joking.. too quick, and I feel sort of bad that I can't comment on every shot that I like because when I am able to make it online here, 7 or 8 pages have past, and it's just too much to keep up with. That, and I think I start to sound redundant because everyone's shots are so excellent :)

I absolutely agree.

Just for the heck of it, I looked at some posting statistics for Aug 2018 in this thread.

Total number of posts = 1905
Number of posts with pictures = 585

So 1320 posts (almost 70%) were for compliments and comments, and thanks to the commenters, and various other chatter.

I agree, though, that good comments are real useful and add a lot to the thread. So I don't know what to do about it. -?

It's not often I can take a photo of a bird with a 200mm Prime. These Starlings must be so use to people and just happy to share a bench or a chair with you.

I have no idea of this bird and most other birds. I am very new to wildlife, perhaps one of our experienced member may identify it. Thanks for the complement.

It's an East African Grey Crowned Crane. I saw one some years ago at Sylvan Height Bird Park in Scotland Neck, NC.

There is also West African Black Crowned Crane that is very similar.

Beautiful capture and Starling and proof that you don't have to have a natural perch to have an awesome shot.
