Everyone can see the coordinates unless the taxon is threatened.
Public coordinates shown as a random point within 10KM of the true coordinates. True coordinates are only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation.
Coordinates completely hidden from public maps, true coordinates only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation. Observations with private coordinates will still be used to verify place check lists.
This was a fairly small bird. It was a light brown color, almost a tan color. It was around a half a foot tall. The bird flew away very quickly when I got too close, I was surprised at how fast it was.
