My understanding is that all the eBird submissions, regardless of portal used, are reflected in your personal "My eBird" data because you log in using the same username and password for each portal. For example, during the Great Backyard Bird Count in February, there is a special portal used and everything I entered there was in my "My eBird". Also, I did a couple of checklists through the VA eBird Atlas portal when I was birding in Virginia during breeding season, and they were part of my total in My eBird.

Also, if a checklist is entered on the BBA portal, does it also automatically appear in your personal My eBird account?

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 HensonSterling, VA

There are virtually no breeding birds right now other than owls and Bald Eagle (crossbills could be but this isn't a year for them). So, unless you have something that qualifies as probable or confirmed, it won't matter. If you're familiar with safe dates, you'll know that most birds aren't of concern until April or May at the earliest. I'm not sure if you go back and change it but there's no reason why it wouldn't just move the data from the regular to the BBA database.
Also, if you use eBird on a computer, please use the BBA portal:
This is all new to most of us. Virginia is well into their BBA so anyone familiar with VA data, it would be nice to have any clarification!

Thanks for the reminder. I have 2 questions:
1. Can you add them to the MD BBA from the computer browser/eBird site?2. Can you change the portal after submission without having to delete and re-enter data?
