Very nice dr.sanjay date! Since you know the identity of your organism (from your use of its common name, Indian roller), please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. (Please do this for all your spottings). In this case the scientific name is Coracias benghalensis. In terms of the Project Noah database, adding the scientific name will make your spotting a complete record, and allow groups and individuals to find your spotting, and use the data it provides. It will at the same time take your 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 http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/2870249... Thanks!
