Why doesn't the rare bird I reported yesterday show up when I explore the area and species overview?

Yesterday, I saw and photographed a Yellow-headed Blackbird in my yard in Paynesville, MI. When I go to explore the Ontonagon Michigan area, other birds from the checklist I submitted show up but this one does not. Do you need more time to evaluate whether or not I actually saw it...do I need to submit more information? I am sure my photos are clear, and I am certain of my identification. Do I need to do anything else?

Rare birds need to be confirmed by a reveiwer before being added to the data base. Reveiwers are volunteers so it may take a bit of time. If your photo is clear and the ID is correct there should be no problem.
