Need gift ideas for a birder or a backyard birdwatcher? Or maybe you are a birder or birdwatcher yourself and want gift ideas to hint to someone else. Whether for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, a birthday or a holiday gift, here are some ideas to make a birder or bird watcher smile.
When you go out birding, you often have quite a bit of gear to bring with you. Finding the perfect birding bag to hold it all can take a little time and research. While Jim and I each have special padded camera bags and backpacks that we use to transport our cameras, binoculars and other related gear on longer vacation trips, for a single day out birding, we use day bags.
One of my most essential birding tools is my Vortex Optics Binoculars Harness. If you spend long periods of time wearing binoculars, you have probably experienced one of the banes of bird watching: a sore neck. Even binoculars that seem light at first, can be a surprising drag on your neck after a while. And that takes some of the fun out of birding. The solution? A harness for your binoculars. It is a simple inexpensive fix that will save you years of sore necks!
