Might be a dumb question but when do you place the casual mark on observations that deal with evidence of a species. Here’s a couple examples.
Artificial bird nest designed to target identified species:
Mark as casual by @fogartyf for “Evidence of Organism” which makes sense.
Bird nest identified to the species that created the nest:
Now, I have no doubt the nest was created by Red-tails but since it’s been taken over by owls, the evidence of Red-tails being in the vicinity is not all that recent. Should a sighting like that receive the casual mark?
So I guess this can lead into a broad variety of questions. Should inactive nests or winter nests even received the research grade mark? Because I think of data quality and it would odd let’s say Montana gets a January House Wren sighting because someone cleaned a box. Thanks for helping me understand the data quality.
