A wildlife feature observation is a record of a detection of a wildlife habitat feature (e.g. nest, or wildlife tree). An observation is made when a surveyor makes a visit to a Design Component on a specific date at a specific time. Each observation may be geo-referenced in itself or simply by association with a specific Design Component. Observations are recorded on the Incidental form, and may include information on species, sex, age class, activity, and/or measurements, depending on whether the animal is in-hand or roaming free
