[Tweeters] Mandarin Duck - Please Go Away

If the Seattle Times Rant and Rave column were to come to Tweeters, my rant would be the Mandarin Duck. It’s an escaped bird that doesn’t belong in eBird any more than back yard chicken do. Since I subscribe to life bird alerts for King County, I have spent a year deleting email alerts about this escaped duck. It isn’t ABA countable so I’m not sure why so many people feel a need to put it in their eBird checklists. Does anyone know if there is a way to turn off eBird alerts for a specific species? There probably isn’t but thought I’d ask in case I have missed a toggle switch somewhere. Thanks.
