After marking some videos now something came into my mind:
what difference is between the event "Bird on nest" and "Brooding chicks" when I know and see during the video that there are eggs?
Theoretically both events need to be marked for the appropriate time segment...

Edit:
Forget it - I misunderstood it a bit. After reading the instructions it's clear now. Thread can be deleted.

I am not sure I know the how to report these two events so clarification would be helpful.

Mark brooding chicks if you know chicks are actually at the nest (you might see them popping out). When you mark brooding chicks also mark on nest, because both would be true.

Yes, that's what I thought first too, but marking them always double would make it a lot more complicated. Since brooding chicks implies that there must be a parent on the nest I think it should be obsolete to mark also "on nest".

Yes, but in terms of what we're doing in terms of both biological analysis and computer vision, it really makes things a lot better on our end if both are marked.

Oops, I missed your answer on this.

Hm, I wonder how much percentage of the already watched videos you are making invalid with this (late) statement. I'm sure most of us didn't do that like this.
