Michael, I think that has been a problem for quite a few members. I'll fix this one and if you send me an e-mail with links to your other spottings, and what mission(s) to remove, I'd be happy to adjust them for you. I think with an upcoming revamp of the program, our problems will be solved, but until that time, I can get them fixed for you. My e-mail is No rush! Thanks!! ;-)

@ChristyHolland. This is a problem that frequently occurs with my account. I didnt place it in the raptor category and now it is there it will not allow me to remove it. I have a couple of my spottings that even have 6 missions that the software allows. Couple glitches that probably need worked out. If you have a recommendation as to how to fix this I would welcome any suggestions. Thank you.

Hi Michael! Great series of this magnificent bird! However, it is not a Raptor. Would you please remove it from the Raptors of North America mission? I welcome any other raptor spottings you've got! Thank you!
