Are we allowed to have handwritten notes inside of our fieldguide? because I’m pretty sure we were but our regional es checked everyone’s field guides for annotations before the test.
I also go by Chino.

Never heard of anyone checking for this, but it doesn't say anywhere in the rules that it's not allowed, so I would assume it's fine. It's not like they can really confiscate your field guide...

It's been a couple years since I've done animal events (Invasive for 2 years, Herpetology for 1 year), so does anyone have a good estimate how long we spend at each station?

On most tests I've seen, it was closer to 3-4 minutes, although definitely around that range, but I've seen up to 15ish short answer questions at a station, so it really depends on the writer and the size of the competition.

I had one that was a slide presentation instead; with 20 slides that each lasted for 2.5 minutes. There were 3-6 short answer questions per slide.

On most tests I would say 2-3 minutes, with anywhere from 5-10 questions depending on the difficulty of the exam. Another thing that's pretty frequent is ID stations, where there are 20-30 different birds and the goal is just to ID all of them.

What sort of information would you all consider worth memorizing in addition to having in the binder? I'm trying to improve my speed and am wondering how you all have been able to juggle it.

I would recommend having a basic knowledge of breeding habits for each bird. Otherwise, the best thing to do to improve your speed would probably be to make your binder as organized as possible.
