Watches, Timers

Carry a Timepiece of Some Type When In the Field

A watch (or other time device) is a must any time you are in the field, particularly if you are engaging in an activity, such as birdwatching, which encourages leaving the trail. It is wise to always be aware of the time and how long it will require to return your trailhead. If you leave a trail, it is particularly important to be on the trail before dark, because it can then become hard to find.
Birders may want to have a watch with chronographic capability. Many times a bird of interest keeps itself hidden in the foliage, in which case it must be identified by it's song. Or it may be singing from a distance. This song identification frequently requires noting the frequency and duration of the individual repeated phrases. For the perfectionist birder this may mean a chronometer is needed. However, most bird watcher can collect required information using a watch with a stopwatch function which measures time to the tenth second. They seldom need the guaranteed precision (nor the price) of a chronometer.
