Taxonomy update Monday: Submit unsubmitted lists from your phone!

The taxonomic update is taking place on Monday.

*VERY IMPORTANT:* If you have unsubmitted checklists on eBird Mobile or
BirdLog is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you submit those today or over the
weekend. While we know that sometimes there are good reasons to delay
submission of your lists and to keep them on the phone, this may cause
issues with the taxonomic update if the list does not get submitted first.
It is only a handful of (fairly rarely reported) taxa that might cause
this, but the best way to avoid instability is to make sure all your
checklists on your phone show the blue "accepted" indicating that the lists
have been submitted to your eBird account.

*Please remember: *eBird Mobile and BirdLog are ways to submit to eBird;
eBird is the ultimate repository! Your lists are not part of eBird and not
permanently archived until they say "Accepted" in blue. It is a good idea
to periodically make sure all the lists have been submitted (green "Not
Submitted" and gray messages (e.g., "Submitted") should be cleared if

Please see the below story for more detail on this issue with eBird Mobile
and the taxonomic update in general. This story will be updated a few times
in the next week to keep users posted on how the update is proceeding:
