Problem posting reports on eBird site. Examples below.
To someone in the eBird community:
In recent days I have attempted to add/post 3 separate reports for which they have yet to be entered. They are: 1.Boundary Bay 96-88th St, (mansion) 2017-08-29 11:40;
2.Frank Lake--Northwest lookout/blind 2017-07-07
06:33; 3.Frank Lake--Northwest lookout/blind 2013-08-02 09:30
I have made some changes to all of these reports as I have thought more about their completeness/accuracy. The Boundary Bay ones had me reconsider the total number of ducks on the ocean. I have knocked about 2000 of them off and changed their compositions. For example, for the ones I could not see. I also took a closer look at my Godwit pictures and I can say I have no proof of see any HUGO and that the nine were all BTGO. I thought I saw at least one that was more gray and smaller through my scope but with no photo ID.
As for the Frank Lake reports, I tried to switch locations between the plot marker to a more popular one, thus the above location title. Wouls you help me sort this out? I have worked very hard to consistently and conscientiously enter quality lists and counts. Thank you and I await these changes.

Hard to assist unless you can provide direct URL to the entries in question.
But estimates are suitable: see Bird counting 101 and 201if you have not read either previously

We do not believe that every submission, not even every unusual submission, need be supported by images. Yes, images are nice, but that option is more or less extremely recent. Many reviewers want everybody to be as good as they perceive themselves to be - but that is not likely to occur???
You ought to be able to make the revisions you indicate, but be careful only to have one checklist open at any one time. Otherwise you may have problems as you indicate.
