Getting information on My pic's.

I see most of the pic's when you but your curser on them info like the bird species and your name pop up. I was wondering how to do that to My pictures?

Your post is somewhat unclear. Can it be you are referring to the "By you!" credit, instead of your name when you hover your own photos?

If that is what you mean: ONLY *you* will see "By you!", others will just see your name.

There is no way to change the "By you!".

And the bird species is not going to pop up if you name the photo “DSC_02957”...

What Viejito says - and tagging your photos properly won't be a bad thing either. Otherwise your photos cannot be picked up in Search..

By the way, I see great bird photos in your stream, so yes, you should really include the name of the birds in title, possibly also description and tags. They surely deserve to be found.
