Hi liarativona, you can move the map pin manually. Simply click on "Edit this Spotting" button then you can click ind hold the map pin to drag and drop. Use the +- buttons to get more accuracy.
Indeed the bird looks like a Sparrow but there are many species there.

The location is not correct, sorry! I thought I fixed it but I guess not. For some reason it won't center on Eugene, OR, so I tried just typing it and not worrying about "Search" but I guess that doesn't do anything. :(

Hi liarativona, and welcome! I can see the bird OK.Well caught! Is the location correct? Right now it shows off the African coast in the Atlantic ocean.

The bird is the little brown thing darting off the post on the left (in line with the bars on the post. I think it is a house sparrow given the dark brown back and brown spots on a white belly?

Please read the FAQ. I can't see a bird in this spotting. Spottings need to show an identifiable organism. Please "edit this spotting" and put a picture of a visible bird, or delete this spotting and make a new spotting of an organism of any kind you have seen in nature. Thanks for understanding.

Hello liarativona, and Welcome to the Project Noah community! We hope you like the website as much as we do. There are many aspects to the site and community. The best way to get started is to read the FAQs at where you can find all the tips, advice and "rules" of Project Noah. You, like the rest of the community, will be able to suggest IDs for species that you know (but that have not been identified), and make useful or encouraging comments on other users' spottings (and they on yours). There are also "missions" you can join and add spottings to. See Note that most missions are "local". Be sure not to add a spotting to a mission that was outside of mission boundaries or theme. Each mission has a map you may consult showing its range. We also maintain a blog archive where we have posted previous articles from specialists from different geographical areas and categories of spottings, as well as wildlife "adventures.” So enjoy yourself, share, communicate, learn. See you around!
