Choosing Binoculars

Man looking through binoculars in a birdwatching hideout.

There are many types of binoculars, but what kind is best for bird watching? There is a lot of information out there on brands, magnification and comfort factors, such as weight and ease of focusing.

We’ve attempted to gather links to the most informative articles to help you decide on what pair of binoculars would be best for you and within your price range. And also the features that might be most important to you, such as the method of focusing and the weight, (you may be carrying them on long hikes). Weight is important because when you hold the binoculars up to your eyes, you don’t want them so heavy that your arms get tired and you’ll want to be able to hold them still. We hope you find good information here and find the perfect pair of binoculars!
