    Thanks for taking the time to do a Molt Search, Carolyn! Shoot us an email ( if you have trouble editing your report from the webpage ( We’re still in the pilot season with a lot of tweaks being made so we’d love to hear about the glitch you found trying to add a photo via the app! Hopefully it was a nice time out there and that the process will only get easier!
