Prediction of nest counts, chicks, or adults?

It isn’t exactly clear what the predictions should be. Observations can be of these 3 different types, but which one is used in the test set?

The goal is to predict nest counts, we’ll make that more clear in the problem description!

One more related question, is the prediction at year level or season starting level ?

The years in the submission format are for the season, not the calendar year.

I was actually asking about the years mentioned in submission file, there we have 4 years i.e from 2013 to 2017, and we have column ‘year’ and column ‘season_starting’ in the file ‘training_set_observation’. I was confused do we need to predict at the season starting level or year level.

Yep, that’s what I was saying. The columns in the submission file labeled with the year are for season_starting years.

Thanks for the explanation bull
