Alright, quick question. What is the best field guide to use for the competition. I'm currently using National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America, but I definitely feel like there is a better option. Any suggestions?

Find a field guide that covers your weaknesses. E.g. I use one that covers eggs, nests, and nestlings because I forgot about that while making my binder (rip lol)

Does anyone have a way to get randomly generated calls/songs for the birds? I want to quiz myself on them but can't find a way without looking up the specific bird and play its sound.

I would recommend looking at the Peterson field guides. They have a lot of good tricks for differentiating similar birds that you could put into a document.

Agree, Peterson field guides.
Sibley Guide is fantastic for quick ID, but doesn't contain as much information
I would also consider the National Geographic guide.
