    Default FeatherWiki *COMING SOON*

    We will be introducing a new site feature in the near future called: FeatherWiki. Similar to Wikipedia, it will be a member-editable platform where, with your help and contributions, we can build a large resource of birding and bird photography information in one central location. To begin with, there will be a section on the Birds of Australia along with a section on Birding Locations around Australia.

    Any member of Feathers and Photos will be able to edit or add information to these articles in FeatherWiki and/or create new articles as needed. For now, here's a brief glimpse into the look of FeatherWiki...

    An article as seen in the Birds of Australia Guide...

    It should be a great resource and feature. I'll look forward to it, and am sure it will be a great success.

    Just had a thought, perhaps include a description of the bird's call and include an audio file of the call (if someone has it recorded). I know I have a recording for both the White-winged Chough and Apostlebird that I would be more than willing to share.

    I think Bec's suggestion is a good one too. Does anyone know if you can take the sound from 5D etc video as a separate file?

    This is great news Richard - I think for members a great new thing to participate in - as much as I enjoy posting images sometimes it becomes a tad monotonous so it will be nice to have another option that can be of real value - thanks for your efforts and I personally hope to contribute to this cheers David Taylor

    Agree with what David has said above. It will be a great resource and something a little different which I reckon will be of great value and helpful to everyone!

    Thanks!

    Will be a great new addition to the site and I look forward to its introduction This has been Richards pet project for the latter half of this year and he has been very, very busy putting it together. Without Rich we would still be on the old forum format and us mods/admins would be struggling to come to terms with the technical issues involved with keeping the forum running. Thanks for all your hard work Rich and a very merry Xmas to you
