Backyard birds

Hi everyone
I haven't done much photography lately, but here are some birds in my backyard today.
I've just found out that flickr has changed again and made itself really user unfriendly. And the code is enormous. I hope it works. Here goes ...

Help. What have they done? Why do they have to change something that works?

Hey don't panic Birdgirl. Just right click and the same thing happens. First it gives you the option of choosing the size that you want, then when you have that, you right click again and copy image location.

Hope this works now that I have said it is easy!!

Cheers

I think this is gonna be a thumbnail...

... I can't right click on the full size photo and get the properties box up, I'll try it with Mozilla instead of IExplorer.

You're right Birdie ^^

Eastern Rosellas at your famous nesting box?

I sure would love to hear the update on the nesting box, looks like the rosellas have beaten the Myna's this time!

Amateur, I never use Explorer, always Mozilla. So much more reliable . Interesting though, I didn't even see the codes you must have used to find these. Mine just shows a blank space where Birdgirl tried to post

Love the noisy shot well taken!
Colours on the eastern rosellas are fabulous.

Must agree with Mozilla being much more reliable. I got the codes because IE shows a little box with a cross though it to indicate a "failed photo", and it has the link, whilst on Mozilla it just comes up blank :) I love the 2nd photo of the Eastern Rosella! You can see all it's colours, and their back looks awesome!

Hi Amateur and birdie - thanks for your help - I used 'actions' - 'view all sizes' then selected 'medium', then went back to 'share this' - 'grab the HTML', which seemed to be what the FAQs said to do, but it didn't work.
After reading your post birdie, I right clicked and selected 'medium 500', then right clicked and went to 'properties' and got the url from there. That's with internet explorer. I have mozilla firefox as well, but tend to mostly stick with IE. I'll try again just to be sure.

Amateur as you can see, we took the lid off several weeks ago to try and make the mynas go away but they won't - they are guarding the box but have not put nesting material in it yet. Several pairs of rosellas have been looking when the mynas are not there. My husband made a sliding door today to try and exclude them. They are an ongoing problem

Amateur here is an Indian myna at the box today. The sliding door is in place, so we can keep them out

Hey Birdgirl... couldn't find the post where we were discussing Grevilleas, but seeing as this has a photo of one I thought I'd stick this in here. I have been waiting to get a pic of the Yellow grevillea that is common here and that the birds all love so much so here it is... have no idea of it's name though
in fact this may be a different yellow one now that I look at it again

Hi birdie it's a beauty isn't it? With that rich dark gold it could be honey gem, which is very popular or if it has a really reddish look to the centres it could be majestic.

Erwin126 - your posts appear very 'spam-like'. This forum is for people to exchange information about birds. If you continue to simply post links such as in the previous thread I will delete you.

Amateur

May I advise that no one opens the link?

Obviously I missed something here...not subscribed to anything any more it appears!!!

Birdgirl - there is a lighter yellow one too , more of a lemon one but this one seems to attract honey eaters of all sorts :)

Hi birdie - yes we had to remove all your subscriptions to stop the problems you were having. Hope it is fixed now.
