Indiana gets binders...but when it comes down to it, you just have to know the info because it takes too long to go binder searching.

i find the iPhone/iPod apps by Peterson to be very helpful in learning the calls of birds. i used those last year and never missed a call on a test.
Which iPod app are you using? I can only seem to find the ones for Backyard Birds, Birds of Prey, and Warblers. Did you get all 3?

Suggestions....
well.... know your birds!! :) actually, if you don't know the bird, atleast know the family so you narrow everything down... um. NEVER leave anything blank Esp. for sounds. and study hard!!!! :)
No matter what the experiment's result, there will always be someone eager to:(a) misinterpret it(b) fake it, or (c) believe it supports his own pet theory.

Does your team generally work in groups? If so, that's a bit dangerous, since only two can compete, and you might have gaps in your knowledge

agreed, Orno is a heavy memorization event, seeing how (for TX) its usually in 2 min. stations with like, 5 or so (tons) of questions, and if you don't immediately know the bird, a book won't help.
i know when we study our A and B study together, but between the two partners, we usually split like-- you do the front, i will do the back (id and sounds) and then everything else, we both need to know...

Why memorize the order and family if you can bring the National Bird List? Just wondering, haha

What I'm doing is having my partner and I both cover everything. That way there should be no gaps, hopefully. It's time consuming, but it should work ...

Because knowing the order and family straight off will leave you station time to look up additional info, which you will need
