Photos in eBird Comments!

Today I just realized that I can incorporate HTML into my eBird comments! This enables me to format text, insert line breaks, and even display photos using references to other websites! Here is an example checklist:

I used a photo I uploaded to the internet (my blog), and used the HTML tag to display it in the species comments! This is the code I typed into the comments box:

To learn how to use HTML (it's very easy), go to W3Schools HTML tutorials.
