Recording birds - yard vs patch
I live on 14 acres and have a pond (or 'tank' as we say in Texas). So throughout the year, I see a wide variety of birds either coming to my feeders, or on the pond , or flying over, or on our land. Is this my 'patch' or my 'yard'? If I look out my windows and see 2 Wilson's Snipes in the yard, is that 'incidental'? What's the best way to keep track of/record these birds I see?
