How should I document visual identification AND breeding codes (auditory IDs)?

I notice that when I add breeding modifiers, my entries are flagged "possible". Entries without breeding codes and flyover entries are not so flagged. Sometimes I see and hear birds. How can I best enter undisputed observations so they are not flagged as possible? Is it better to omit breeding codes if I see the birds as well as hear them? Is the "possible" merely the interpretation I added of the breeding code? Thanks.

Hi Vincent,

The "possible" only refers to its breeding status. It means they may be breeding in the area based on what you saw. It's not suggesting your identification is incorrect.
