There is definitely something majestic about bird watching. It’s something that most of us take for granted, but those who look at it as an art enjoy every minute. Unfortunately there times when it’s hard to see them, but if you have the right binoculars for bird watching it can make a monumental difference.
Linear field of view is most commonly used as it is expressed in feet and yards in a factual statement (330FT/1000YD). That expression can be quickly understood to mean that at 1000 yards your will see 330 feet of left-right terrain with the best ar 15 scope.
Mistake Number Two – buying binoculars that are not waterproof. You say you’ll never go birding in the rain? That may be true, but even water vapor from humidity in the air can be a problem. If your binoculars get any amount of moisture inside them they can fog up inside when that moisture condenses due to a change in temperature just like your mirror gets fogged up when you take a hot shower. Even if they dry out later, that day of birding was spoiled. Good, waterproof binoculars are filled with nitrogen to keep out moisture and even these can be found in a relatively inexpensive pair.
Better quality binoculars tend to have a field of view between 315 and 390 feet at 1000 yards. Those are general guidelines, but will satisfy field of view requirements for birding, hunting, marine activities, and most spectator sports.
Bird & Animal Watching Clubs: Binoculars will obviously go down well with such clubs. You can give them away to promote your business to the members or perhaps use the binoculars as a prize.
Though you can find a wide range at cheaper prices, you are still going to spend money on your purchase so you might as well ensure that you are spending your hard-earned money wisely.
