It certainly makes sense to include something about eBird data in the comments, though I have not confirmed that none of the existing comments address that issue. However, the Center for Biological Diversity submitted a 120-page comment that addresses the issue of scientific data more generally, and addresses the "distinct population segment" (DPS) issue as well. The comment is here:
As to birds, I had a Rufous Hummingbird at my inner NE Portland feeder today, a fairly rare occurrence.
