Please submit photos to AZFO Web Site

I have recently taken over as Photo Editor for the part of the Arizona Field Ornithologist’s (AZFO) web site that posts rarity photos. Since this is a statewide site, I would like to see more photos posted there from Northern Arizona. Recently reported birds on this list that are on the Arizona Bird Committee’s list of review or sketch details birds include Northern Shrike, Rough-legged Hawk, Purple Finch and Cackling Goose. Pictures of any of these species would be welcome.

Although you can post pictures to this list, the advantage of posting to the AZFO site is that photos are permanently archived and are shared with a wide audience. The photo gallery page at AZFO receives over 3500 “hits” per month.

Photos do not have to be great (see recent photos of Yellow-billed Loon) but should show enough characters to confidently identify the bird. In addition to rarities of statewide significance (ABC “Review and Sketch Details” species), AZFO is interested in rarities of regional or county significance and out of season rarities. It would be especially nice to document county rarities in the less heavily covered counties in the state.

For further details go to:
click on "Photo Highlights"
then click on either “How to submit photos to AZFO” or “Image Preparation Guidelines” in the upper right corner of the page for details

I am of course happy to answer any questions at any time.

Welcome to the forums, Mike!

It should be noted that the NAAS database is also permanently archived and received 186,000 hits from 5200 unique visitors in January alone. :grin:

AZFO is free to link to any photos on the NAAS website or contact the photographers for more ...

I hope you did not think I was trying to get people to submit to AZFO instead of here. Of course meant it would be nice to have pictures posted in both places. The NAAS site is great. However, many people visit the AZFO site who do not visit the NAAS site and it would be great to make them more aware of Northern Arizona birds.

Just want to let people know their submissions are welcome to AZFO.
