When should I use the "Find it by city, county or state" option?

This option is a last resort to allow entry of mostly historic data where observers don't have the exact location covered.  It is critical to be as precise as possible when entering your checklist locations, and only use city, county and especially state, as a last resort when you don't have more detailed location information.  By entering data from more refined locations eBird analysts will be able to do more with the data, essentially linking the birds you see with the habitat they occupy on the ground.
