What is the best way to enter sightings of birds in my backyard while maintaining my privacy?
I have a bird feeder in my backyard, and would love to enter my sightings, but don't want to put my address online. What should I title the location?

If you want to submit checklists that do not show the exact location of your yard then do this: go to submit observations > select an entire city, county, state, or country and type in your city. After that just fill in the checklist and you should be good to go.

Note that if you select an entire city, county, state, or country as your location, your checklists will be marked invalid for scientific research purposes.

A good way to keep your exact address anonymous is to use a personal location for your entire neighborhood. This way, it's specific enough to be useful for research, but not so specific your address could be found.
