How to obsure my home birding address
I've been keeping lists for my backyard and for my neighborhood walks. I'd like to know how to obscure my address for my backyard- I'd like the lists to be available, but don't want to advertise my address to the public.

Easiest way is to not use your address! I personally have "my yard" as my address and set the pin in a local park.

I second David's advice. I don't want people knowing where I live. For the name of my location I use the name of a cross street and put the pin marker a short distance away at an intersection. Yes it is fudging the data by a few hundred meters, but in the grand scheme of things I doubt that matters. eBird staff would, I'm sure, not want your privacy to be compromised just to report a bird.
