I got a real scare tonight. Using the app on iOS, I looked at the map of an area where I observe frequently. I saw only four of my observations. This kind of freaked me out.
So I went to the browser view in Safari on my iPad. Same thing happened. Really freaked out now.
Went to Safari on my MacBook and got the same result. I got really nervous about my hundreds of observations…
So I did an experiment on my Mac.
If I search my observations for nine-banded armadillos, I get two hits from 2014 using this UR:
If I search my observations for cardinals, I get 2 hits, one in 2014 and one in 2019, using this URL:
But if I search the street where the armadillos and cardinals were found (Vaquero Cv, Austin, TX):
I get four hits, none of which is an armadillo or a cardinal. All are in 2019 although I have several years of observations on this street.
This is the same result I get if I just explore my observations using the map to zoom in on that street and if I use the iOS app.
I used to be able to see all of my observations. What is going on?
