Likely eBird is updating taxonomies based on the latest AOU update. They'll be in flux for a few days but will auto-correct.

So I looked at a checklist that I knew should have Mallard and found Mallard/Mexican Duck instead. Okay, maybe I goofed up. So then I looked at another checklist, Juanita Bay Park, and found the same thing. Sorry, but I don't think that I made the same error twice. On top of that eBird sorted the possible species based on 97 Juanita Bay checklists. Mallard is in the never reported category. It appears that something is seriously wrong. I would appreciate feedback on this. Are others seeing the same thing? Has eBird been hacked?
