Lifelists mean different things to different people. To some, they are informal listings of which birds they’ve observed. To others, they are complete records of what, when, and where every species were experienced.
My Lifelists provide memories to reflect back on past experiences, and promote a goal-oriented objective for new milestones and achievements.
Entries to my Lifelists are made in accordance with the five Recording Rules & Interpretation from the American Birding Association (ABA).
