TYPE: H = Heard Only (no visual), S = Seen Only (silent), B = Both Seen and Heard.
AUDITORY - Vocal Series (Vocalizations): K = KEER calls, G = Groan (alternate) calls, O = Whistle or Soft Que calls, U = Unknown, --- = None or N/A. Indicate the vocal type
heard at both the start and end if calls grade between different types during the detection. Indicate the number heard 1-5 or M = Multiple. OL = Overlapping Vocalizations (Y or N).
AUDITORY - Other (Non-Vocal Sounds): W = Wing Sound, J = Jet Sound, --- = None or N/A. If both are heard write W / J.
BEHAVIOR: F = Flight Over Canopy, C = Circle Over Canopy, T = Fly-Through At or Below Canopy (< 1.0), B = Circle At or Below Canopy (< 1.0), L = Seen Landing in or
Departing From a Tree, S = Stationary Calling (fixed-point multiple calls <100 m), U = Unknown.
