The guidance in VA (which may well differ from the MD guidance) was to only submit checklists using the BBA Portal if they contained breeding codes/data. My understanding for the rationale was that otherwise when doing quality checks on checklists, they would have to wade through a lot of checklists that had no breeding data to realize that one or two checklists (for GHOW for example) were missing breeding codes.
I have not looked through the MD/DC BBA documentation to see what the correct guidance is, but the documentation can be found here: https://ebird.org/atlasmddc/about
Hope that helps, Bryan Henson Sterling, VA
