Merge duplicate locations
Hi I now have at least 3 locations called "Home" that I cannot seem to merge. When I try to merge I get "Oops..this function is not working" or something similar. I would like to enter all of my home observations in a single list. Please advise...thank you!

See this for a how to. This also goes for merging personal locations.
You can merge a personal location, and all of its associated checklists, with an existing eBird hotspot by doing the following. Go to “My eBird” and then select “Manage my locations.” Next to the location you wish to merge click “Edit.” On the resulting mapping page click the “Merge” radio button. This will activate the eBird hotspots (red balloons) and display them on the map, as well as show you all your personal locations (blue balloons). To merge your location with another existing location simply select the destination location by clicking on it. A message will pop up above the map that says “Merge all XX checklists with XX location?”. If you want your personal location to be deleted after the merge (recommended) check the “Delete after merging” box. When you’re satisfied that you’ve got it right click the “Merge” button. Important!—This action cannot be undone!
