How Can I Report Photos of Misidentified Species?
I love using the media search tool to explore photos uploaded by other eBirders, but I often find pictures of birds that were reported under the wrong species (for example, I recently found a photo of a Least Bittern reported as a Green Heron). Is there any way to report these situations so they can be corrected, either to the eBirder who uploaded the photo or to the local reviewer?

If you are a so-called Power User (someone who submitted 365 complete checklists in a year) then you can simply flag the mis-identified bird.
If you are not a Power User then you can post a link to the checklist on this forum explaining the situation and ask that it be reported. I have done this in the past with some success.
