That’s MY kind of list too. I don’t actually write down the scat but I have definitely many examples of “too far gone for the UofM collection” list. The Eagles on our beach up north leave presents to announce their presence often. Usually fish, but many times birds too.

Anything is countable if you have the right attitude ;D
(I may be biased as I have a "scat list", "dead bird freezer list", and "dead birds too far gone for UM collection but not too far gone for this list" list.)
I don't know who is responsible for gatekeeping lists. personally I think you should list whatever the hell you want and damn the naysayers (with some exceptions, of course, if you are recording on ebird). If you are asking if it is countable for ebird purposes, the answer is yes, but it will be flagged... Just mark it as continuing.
