Comments

I just added the following options:
Adult(s) with egg(s)
Adult(s) with chick(s)
Adult(s) with juvenile(s)

With groups of multiple birds, this would be better handed with the fields "adult count", "juvenile count", "chick count", etc. If you need to make these, that's fine. Please let us know.

Some people have been adding photos of empty nests and burrows. We needed some way to track these so I've added "Nest" as an option here. Please use "Egg" or "Chick" when these are present.

Posted by jon_sullivan almost 10 years ago

There's a nest option in the "animal sign and song" field, which is a better thing to use. I've switched the three observations we had of "nest" here to that field and removed the option.

As a consolation, I've added "chick(s) and egg(s)".
