How To Find The Highest Quality Binoculars For Birdwatching

Aug 17, 2007
Bird watching has been a favorite pastime around the world for many centuries. The ancient Romans spent times in the garden comparing the birds to one another. The children of that era would watch for hours according to some literature, sometimes comparing the wingspans of different bird species. Dating back to the beginning of time, bird watchers can be found. There are avid bird watchers even today. With the use of newer technology you can spend hours waiting for the American eagle then snap a photograph through your binoculars.

The key piece of equipment for bird watchers is binoculars. Young or old all would agree that it is impossible to bird watch with out a pair of binoculars. There are several different binoculars on the market today. All have there pros and cons. Some are better optically while others excel in cost.

A typical bird watcher will tell you that an important feature to look for in binoculars is how tough they are. To keep the binoculars in perfect viewing order they will need to work even after being dropped. A lot of binoculars are ruined when dropped accidentally. This is called to some "Bashability". Although not a typical word it explains it well. If they fall too many times will they still work? So the "Bashability" factor is also important to look at when purchasing binoculars.

Cost is another factor to consider. You can find them in prices ranging from $10 to $1000. Looking in the $200 to $400 range is the best for your money. You will find these to be quality binoculars that won't break should you drop them. The clarity is good in this price range also. You want to have lightweight handling which is also available with this price.

The feel of your new binoculars should be somewhat light but not too much. You need to feel comfortable using them; they should feel right in your hands, around your neck and up to your face. You want to keep these for years to come so you might as well be comfortable.

If you are going to take up bird watching you need to keep these things in mind. When looking for a pair of binoculars to buy you may have to shop around. Binoculars are your key piece of equipment. You want to look for lightweight, tough, comfortable ones with clarity. The ones in the two to four hundred dollar price range are generally sufficient for bird watchers.

Bird watching has been around for many centuries and will probably be around many more. All around the world people of all ages enjoy bird watching. Binoculars should last for many years to come. Enjoy you view!
