How to merge a personal location with an eBird Hotspot
Click on “My eBird” at the top right hand of any page in eBird.
In the left column under “MANAGE MY . . .” click on the second item, “Locations”
At the top of the page click on “Type” of filter and select “Personal.” This will limit your list to personal locations.
In this example, I want to merge a personal location I created at Killdeer Plains into the hotspot for Pond 3. In the search box type all or part of the name of the location that you want to merge.
In the list that appears, select the location you wish to merge.
You can now manage your location. Select “Merge” to reveal the nearby hotspots. Your location should show up as a green marker, available hotspots will be in red. Click on the one with which you want to merge your data.
There is a check box you should check, “Delete after merging”, which will remove your old personal location when you do the merge. If everything looks correct, click on “Merge”. eBird will ask you if you are sure. Confirm that you want to merge.
Your records are now merged into the shared Hotspot and your old personal location is deleted.
