Get a flickr account (it's free). That keeps the data intact. Also, for only $24 a year, you can post the original size jpeg on flickr.

It wouldn't be losing it from uploading. The forums software isn't modifying the attachment. You probably uploaded a different file than you looked at if you can open the file on your PC and see it (or the software you're using has a separate file somewhere it's tracking the photo info with). Otherwise, the EXIF would still be in your post attachment.

IOW, something in your workflow stripped out the EXIF *before* you uploaded it here. If you're not starting with the "straight from the camera" original when using Photoshop to resize it, and you're using "Save As" versus "Save for Web", then some other software you used for editing prior to downsizing with PS probably stripped the EXIF out.

If you look at the file you upload with a basic editor (for example, using the Image>Information>EXIF menu choice with the free Irfanview), you can tell if the EXIF is in it or not.

If you really wish to shoot birds, you're going to want something in the 300-400mm range minimum. In reality, 300mm is very often too short. The beercan would, IMO, be a very poor lens for wildlife work.
