Binoculars for bird watching: bright images and low light vision

Bird watchers want to identify the different species of birds. This means that clear images are essential. When it comes to bird-watching binoculars, you should focus on features like increased resolution, contrast, and color fidelity. Also, if you want to watch birds in the twilight hours as they feed on insects, low light vision is very important. Many different species of birds are mainly active in the morning and in the evening. Or they can only be observed in dense forests, where there's only twilight even during the day.

  • Lens diameter for bird watching. The objective lens diameter should be at least 40 mm if you want to use the binoculars in low light conditions.
  • Exit pupil for bird watching. An exit pupil of 4mm and more provides brightness to recognize details at dawn or dusk.
  • Field of view for bird watching. The field of view should be more than 110 m. A wide field of view makes it easier to find birds when looking through the binoculars.
  • Close focus. The close focus must not exceed 2 meters. This means it feels as close as 2 meters away from the bird. So you can get more exquisite details.

How much do bird-watching binoculars cost?

The price depends on your own requirements. Beginners do not have to start with top-class binoculars. You can get along with binoculars under 50.
