Just posted three photos of Townsend's Storm-Petrel (Hydrobates socorroensis) to the North America gallery - new species for the Gallery and Opus as far as I can tell.
Agree.Don't let it scare you, it really gets easier once you've done the first one!
While I don't know what exactly happened, is it possible that you might've missed a double quote at the very end?a few species other than Black-bellied Sunbird, including Dusky Sunbird, appeared in the results. I don't see anything in the search terms that would have caused those species to be returned by the search. Nevertheless, I saved my edits and checked the search again. Now the species other than Black-bellied Sunbird no longer appeared in the results, but the photo by The Fern is still missing. Not sure what to make of that, other than that the results of Show Preview do not necessarily reflect the results of the search after it is saved.
Similarly, the picture of Dusky Sunbird has words 'black' and 'belly' in the first sentence of the description:You missed the quote after 'White-tailed Iora'!
So, you got:
("Aegithina nigrolutea" OR "Marshall's Iora" OR White) AND tailed AND Iora
'White-tailed' is two words for the search--it's treated the same way as 'white tailed'--so 'white' became part of the OR-clause because it was the first available word after the pipe preceeding it, while the dash between 'white' and 'tailed' was treated like a space (that is, '... | white tailed ...'), which is also equivalent to a plus (that is, '... | white + tailed ...') or a comma (that is, '... | white, tailed ...'), which is translated as 'AND' by the system ('... OR white AND tailed ...').
Similarly, the space between 'White-tailed' and 'Iora' gets turned into an AND. I put the entire OR-clause from the orange quote above in parentheses because it's processed by the search engine before the ANDs take effect.
Because of the above, the search returned all ioras that have the word 'white' and the word 'tailed' (or 'tail' or 'tailing' or 'tails' since the system is smart enough to tell that all four are forms of the the same word 'tail') somewhere in the description.
For example, Common Iora (Aegithina tiphia) has 'iora', 'white' and 'tail' in the description (by the description I mean the title and tags as well).
After you put the quote at the end of 'White-tailed Iora', I don't think you'd even need to exclude 'tiphia' from the results.
