Hi iNatters. I’m just an amateur observer but I’d like to make my observations as useful as I can. What is the bestway to indicate animal behaviors for those who use the data for research? There seem to be a bunch of fields: Behaviour, Animal Behavior, Interaction, etc. that folks are using, so first I need to pick the right one, and then I need to figure out the best termnology for describing the behavior. The most common example for me is observing insects visiting flowers. Is that important to note, and if so, what’s the best way to note it? I’ve seen “visiting flower”, “collecting pollen”, etc.
It’s not that easy to do because the iPhone version doesn’t seem to support it, so I only want to add behaviors that folks care about. Perhaps I should focus more on behaviors that are unusual? Like, the raccoon sleeping in my car under the engine block in 90 degree weather (yes, that really happened, though I didn’t photograph it.)
Guidance appreciated. :-)
