Hello. Since you know the identity of your organism (from your use of its common name), please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. In this case for the "mule deer" it is Odocoileus virginianus. This allows the spotting to be correctly entered into the database and become a complete record, letting groups and individuals find your spotting and use your data. (It also takes the spotting off the "unidentified" list). If you are interested in learning how species are named and why this is important, see Project Noah's blog entry To Please also describe where you saw these deer under "Habitat". Thanks!
