Jeff and others:
Usually in a situation like this -- a non-birder taking a photo(s) that really needs to go onto the CBC Photo Gallery, the best idea is for you (Jeff) to get her permission to upload the photos yourself. You have done this 100 times or more and you know how to do this and are familiar with the website. You have the photos, and if you know the date, location, etc., you should be all set -- if you have her permission. I've seen a number of occasions where the photographer fails to upload photos, generally because they are not a birder. And, yes, I have uploaded photos for others who aren't birders.
This is a first Coastal report in NC for Kirtland's Warbler -- well, technically, I don't consider second-hand comments a "report" yet -- and there is no convincing record at all from the entire Coastal Plain.
We'll keep checking the Photo Gallery from time to time today to see if the photos are there. This sounds way too important to let it slide for more than a day or two.
