2 Birds in One Post

OK, I gave in. I started out wanting to write about great sources for images, and then when I got to wikimedia commons, I got totally carried away by this red capped piping plover chick. This is the winning photo of the day on their site, and was nominated for Picture of the Year for 2007. 

So now that I have highlighted how cute this bird is, I can return to my main premise, that wikimedia is a great source for free photos that you can use without worrying about licensing issues. The site uses the same wiki technology as wikipedia, meaning users can upload images, which include illustrations and photos, and also videos. There are many categories to choose from. So have fun, and next time you need images, don't get your feathers ruffled....
