Yesterday I hacked a plugin which allows importing of comments from Flickr into a WordPress post, however I am not releasing this iteration of the plugin because
It does not really use the Flickr API but the recent activity RSS feed
It involves the WordPress user entering a custom field called flickr_ID which should have the value of the picture ID on Flickr
It is hooked to the admin_head – which means that comments are imported only when I do something in the WordPress Admin
Thus I am not releasing this version – the next version will try to solve the above three issues and I will release that. Meanwhile if you go to this photo on Flickr and comment, the comment will show up on this post in a while
This is a picture I took on 27th Nov 2009 at Ambhazari Lake, Nagpur. The bird with the long beak is a ‘Western’ Black-tailed Godwit, Limosa limosa in it’s winter, non breeding plumage of this bird. These birds migrate from Central Asia (Far East Russia) to India for wintering.
In Nagpur we see them only in April when they are returning and are beginning to assume breeding plumage. However this year for the first time in nearly 8 years of my serious I have spotted them in November…. I hope they stay here throughout winter as it would present a great photo opportunity.
