Hi JoshuaGSmith! You have a great collection! For spottings such as this one where the ID is known to you without doubt, please fill in the scientific name field. Scientific names can easily be found out using Google.
In terms of the Project Noah database, adding the scientific name will make your spotting a complete, usable record, and will also move it off of the "Unidentified" spottings list. If you are interested in learning more on how species are named and why this is important for this site, see Project Noah's blog entry http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/2870249...
Thanks!
