Hi! Am I the only one who doesn't keep a list? When I first started I kept lists, Birds of Essex County, Massachusetts, life. Then one day I left my field guide on the bumper of my truck and drove away. One absent-minded minute and years of listing were gone. Since then I've resisted starting a new list and I like it. It keeps birding fresh for me. I stay in the moment instead of racing off to see the next 'lifer'. I like the freedom from competition.
Does anyone else feel this way?
