I have put individual ID as a random variable in my model, but some individuals only have 1 record and others have 19 records.
Does this mean that individual ID shouldn't be a random variable?
Here's the context: I have birds visiting a feeder and want to know if the length of a visit is determined by species (3 options), site (3 options), and indiviudal ID.
The model I'm running currently is
lenght ~ species + site + (1|id)
