Can I bulk edit species?
I'd like to change all the "Brown Pelicans" in my submitted checklists from California to "Brown Pelican (California)." Is there a way to do this without editing each affected checklist individually?
(This is just an example of wanting to specify the regional race of a species appropriately across multiple checklists.)
One idea I had was to download my eBird data in CSV format, delete all my checklists from eBird, edit the CSV data appropriately, and re-upload the edited checklists back to eBird. Is there a better way?

Unfortunately it seems not. Downloading data from your species list isn't even in the correct format for uploading and you cannot upload and specify the checklist you'd like to edit. You would need to remove the species from the checklists then create a new group of checklists in the right format with the changed species.
