After spending a good deal of my life in the out-of-doors doing one
thing or another, I've belatedly decided to start a life list. My wife
gave me a birder's journal/life list for Christmas, so mostly I'm all
set. My question (relying on the old saw that the only dumb question is
one not asked) is this: how do I account for the birds that I've seen
over the years, but kept no record of? It is probably of no consequence
to anyone but me, but I'd like to do this in keeping with ethos of the
activity (sport?).
