pins are not showing in purple areas on the species maps]
this has been happening to me a lot lately. I am looking at the species maps on my computer, trying to find pins for certain birds in our county. I know these birds have been seen, and know even the date they have been seen. Three examples are Painted Bunting, King Rail, and Sedge Wren. I am in the Fort Myers area of Florida, in Lee County. When I initiate the search, purple squares show up. Then when I zoom in to the purple square that covers Ft Myers, the purple goes away, but no pins show up. However, nearby pins do, like the next county over, and the Miami area, and everywhere else but my area. This is very frustrating. Why is it doing this?

It has to do with Sensitive Species
Note the blurb at the bottom of the map. It'll read like this;
Click points to see sightings and checklists at that location.
NOTE: Points may not be shown in all areas. See our Sensitive Species page for more information.

Then why are the pins showing in neighboring purple squares? That doesn't make sense

Because for whatever reason the bird or birds are considered a Sensitive species for Lee County but not for adjacent counties. Why exactly that is I do not know.
