Observations of same fledgling across different days

I’m sure this has been answered before, but I didn’t find an exact answer.

For the last few days I’ve been following the development of a turkey vulture fledgling via game cameras around the nest, and can post ‘interesting’ (different developmental stages, behaviors, etc) new pics of the same bird as they occur. It’s interesting to me, but may be of no interest in to iNat? It seems the rule is to create a new observation for each date, but should I? Or, just add them to the original observation (seems not desirable).

What’s correct? Does this type of observation fit into iNat’s goals?


Different day, new observation. :)


this might get at what you’re looking for: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/using-the-field-similar-observation-set-for-linking-observations-of-lepidoptera-when-raising-on/1018.

there’s a guy in my area who has been posting observations of a pair of red shouldered hawks and their offspring in a local park (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=110679&subview=grid&taxon_id=5206&user_id=das43). i think it’s interesting to see how different individuals grow and change over time.


I also do this but annually since lichens grow much more slowly than birds!


Welcome to the forum! I’ve been doing this with House Sparrow chicks that made their nest in our 5th wheel hitch. Been watching them since eggs.
