Is this a Swamp Sparrow? Additional Question re: Flickr.
I came across this checklist (S26828587) when I was looking for photos of White-throated Sparrows in San Francisco. This bird is labeled as WTSP. However, to my eyes, being a primarily west coast birder, this appears to be a Swamp Sparrow. I have seen SWSP in the summer in Maine and recently in (winter) CA. I notice the small bill, rufous in the wings and tail, obvious gray nape, buffy flanks, small median crown stripe, and unstreaked gray breast.
So, first question, is this an incorrectly ID'ed Swamp Sparrow? And if so, how does one flag a picture that is linked to a Flickr account versus the standard flagging method for photos directly embedded into eBird that are an incorrect ID? Any/all feedback is welcome. Thank you!
Once more, the checklist in question:
San Rafael, CA

There doesn't seem to be a way to flag photos that are linked rather than directly uploaded. I would suggest that you email eBird directly and explain the situation.
BTW I agree with Swamp Sparrow.
