What is the deal with a yard list competition? There are Cooking
Competitions, even antique buying competitions. Why does a yard list
have to be a competition. Other than ego there is no value to it.
Instead of competition how about cooperation? A yard is anyone's
personal property. The recorded birds are all that are seen or heard
from that property. If one develops a method of describing the
properties so they can be compared, then with the combined
information one can study the influence of habitat on birds.
