If you want to get a close view of the birds in your feeder, the birds you see on a bird walk, or that different looking bird in the tree across the street, there is nothing that will help you more than a good pair of binoculars. Finding the right pair can be a daunting task--the options, price ranges, and technical terms can make your head spin. If you don't really know what you're looking for, your first step should be taking a few moments to read through our guide, Which Binoculars are Right for You?
Once you have a general idea what you're looking for, you'll want to browse through the selections on our website. These were pre-selected to give you the best options for most birding situations--from home use to back-country birding trips to water-bird watching. The technical specs include terms that are unfamiliar to most, so we've put together a List of Definitions that begins with the most common terms and continues to the technical words that will appear foreign to all but a few.
Finally, after you've purchased your new binoculars, you'll want to learn to adjust and focus them properly. We've created a document to help you use them like a pro--How to Focus Binoculars.
