Apologies, also for the "X" notations; we're trying to tailor our notes to fit ebird, but occasionally it just doesn't work out. Especially start/end times, distances, etc. Sometimes you just need to bird without the confines of a form. So for "X" please consider it a constant awareness, if not a high number.
