Can i have 1 list for 2 different locations or do i have to make 2 lists?

For example "my yard" is within a greater area called "my local patch". So can I had to a bird to "my yard" and have it go onto "my patch" as well? Or do I have to make 2 lists for the same bird? Another example would be seeing a bird on a State line. Can I make 1 list to get that bird on both state lists or do I have to make 2 different list for the same exact bird? Thanks

You must make two lists, unless the reporting location is in the yard and the patch, in which case it will go to both. Example: If the yard location is My House, and My House is in My Local Patch, then it will go to both lists. As for the state line, please only report the bird in the state it was actually in--unless it flew over the line.

Generally you count the bird from where you are standing, not where the bird actually is.
Confirmation for that can be found here as well as info regarding birding along state lines:

Thanks for the responces! So lets assume I'm standing on a state line and want the bird for both state lists. I'm in one state bird is in another state. Then I take one step now I'm in the same state as the bird. Do I have to make 2 lists?

If the bird is a usual one, then it really doesn't matter where it is. If it is rare, and you see it from one state but it is in another, then you should report it in both states. This is an example, since the birds were seen from VA but were flying down the river, which is part of MD.
