By the way…..



Our new Bird Forum/Opus system searches the Gallery by the information contained in the tags placed with an image. This is needed in the tags also, even if it is in the title. The minimum information necessary in the tags is the common name, scientific name, and the location where the photo was taken. Plus, any other information you think a person searching our Gallery would use as a search term. Especially if we have an article about it in Opus.



Your assistance in making this happen will be appreciated very much.
