“… birders should have their clocks set to “Birding Time” this will enable us to take advantage of migration season…and for the times we must drive across the state for a rare bird alert. By being on “Birding Time” we will never be late for work or school. When the boss asks why you are late you can say “I am on Birding Time” and you will be excused.”
This is #4 on Don Torino’s list of proposed New Rules for Birders. See his other suggestions in this Wild New Jersey article.
