Transcript Page 5 The Fun of Lists by Roger Barton (Newark-Sun.News 11-27-60) Some of the fun in bird watching consists of keeping lists. There are many kinds. One is the life list, which records all the birds seen in a person's lifetime. Others are lists of all birds seen in a year, or on a trip, or all the birds ever seen from one's yard. And, of course, there are the Christmas counts that have been made across the land each year since 1900. Some bird watchers scorn lists, but most keep lists of various kinds. The late Ludlow Griscom once told me that his life list included 2,500 birds that he had seen in many lands. Roger Tory Peterson includes 1*23 species in the life list that he publishes in his "Field Guide to the Birds." However, this list counts only species east of the Rockies and excludes accidentals and strays. Two of the correspondents of Outdoors have seen 123 different kinds of birds in their own yards. The Urner Ornithological Club has for the last quarter-century kept Big Day lists. These are counts of birds seen by members of the club on a full May day of 20 to 2lt hours afield. Par for the course is 160, although as many as 175 have been tallied. List keeping can be competitive. A bird watcher competes against his own record as a golfer competes against his best score. Bird watchers, including bird clubs, compete against one another. I keep a life list; it now numbers lt85, and I should like to bring it up to 500 within a year. But where shall I find the additional 15 birds? On offshore trips, in the Florida Keys, in the Southwest? This is a problem; 3ist keeping can present problems if it gets out of handl One for the Books - by A. Noel Pettingell George Seeley of Long Branch, N.J. told me that he once read about a Big Day enthusiast who built himself a platform in the top of a tree and spent the day (from dark to dark) recording anything he saw or heard (with the aid of binoculars, I presume) while aloft. According to Seeley, this "Flagpole-Sitting Birdwatcher" listed over 80 species on at least one day's watching. OFFICERS OF THE O.G. I didn't know the meaning of pleasure, until I started "birding".
