Tom, your comments are very much appreciated. I just tried to edit the sighting and entered , first junco, then I entered slate coloured Junco, then entered northern slate coloured Junco, and lastly entered Black eyed junco, but to no avail. actually this is the second posting of a Junco . the name wasn't accepted then also. I am still puzzled as to why that common resident bird isn't included in the list. Sam

as soon as i start typing "ju" in to the species name, Junco was the second option that appeared

I just tried to enter 'junco', again. when I typed in "ju", three options came up, "Bog Rush", "Common Juniper", and "Juniper Moss". typed in "n", nothing changed. typed "c", two disappeared, only "Bog Rush" stayed. Then I typed in "o", all options disappeared. The word "junco stayed. then hit the add button, up came ""Sorry Box"". and wouldn't accept , "junco". actually, I took a 4 pics of my sequences. I don't know what is happening. Sam

This issue is now fixed! Now you should be able to enter "junco" (you may need to refresh the browser when you are on the data entry page).

Please accept our apologies!

I have just tried again to enter junco in my sighting. the same thing happens as earlier, junco doesn't appear. !!!! Sam

We have added "Junco" to the sighting. Again, sorry for any inconvenience. Try holding the CTRL key and refreshing the page when you are entering the spices. This should clear out your cache and reload the page.

Thanks, nlnature, for adding "JUNCO to my sighting April 08, 2014. the problem, however is not fixed. I tried to update my previous sighting but the site wouldn't acknowledge , "JUNCO, or "black-eyed Junco", either, so I had to leave it to , "unknown". I've tried more than once. I also took your advice and tried to enter, :Black-eyed Junco" to the sighting you added "junco" to. same thing. "Junco", or "Black-eyed Junco" would not appear in the suggestion list Sam
