Hello! To get likes you just post! Like how I just liked your post just now. You just post stuff and people will like it if they want.
I would recommend introducing yourself in the New Members forum. (I can get ya a link if you want.) Then exploring this site even farther and learning about birds and meeting new people!
Instructions for a computer: Move your mouse to the 'account' button (top menu to the right). If done, a menu should pop down. Click 'your profile page'. After doing so, you should find that on your left sidebar, it will show you your profile stats. It will also say how many 'trophy points' you have. Click the blue numbers (slightly to the right of where it says 'trophy points' and a list will pop up of the trophy points you have earned. Click 'view all available trophies' to see how to get trophy points.
Here is that list:
