This only applies to those who have counted in the past and will count at least some of the same miles in 2018 [counts possible thru & incl 4 FEB].
Among my eBird checklists are those I submitted for the 2014 & 2015 canal counts. Viewing/editing those files allows one to submit another checklist for the SAME LOCATION and the only need is to modify the date.
So do that if you can. If you've already submitted a checklist using a made up location as I did, think about redoing the list to tie in the data with the better location name. Then DELETE the old one.
One caveat: Be sure you are using the correct mile location. Here's that even briefer tutorial again:
In the "normal" direction, i.e. UPSTREAM: Begin at a milepost, e.g. milepost 58. Add 1. You will be surveying mile 59.
In the "reverse" direction, i.e. DOWNSTREAM: Begin at a milepost, e.g. milepost 58. You will be surveying mile 58.
ps I hope I got the tutorial right this time :)
