Why is Place pre-filled in Identify?

When I go to the Identify page from the iNat homepage top menu, the Place field is pre-filled with my county. Did I accidentally set something somewhere to make it do that? (So long ago I don’t remember…) When I remove the place the URL is updated to https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?place_id=any but there is nothing after /identify before I do that.

Can you check your account settings to see if there is a place entered under where it says “Search place”? https://www.inaturalist.org/users/edit


To remove the filter, click the little downward facing arrow, select Clear at the bottom of the list, then scroll to the bottom of the settings page and Save.


That was it! Thank you
