Hi R-listers,

I am receiving an error - see below. Aeventexhumed is the event in which
nesting occured, so it is defined by A, B, C. I thought as a factor was ok,
tried to change it to as.character but it still gave me the same error. Is
there something I should do about this error or just ignore it? 

Please advise, Jean
