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.
