In the fading light of evening, two Canada geese take to the sky, intent on one another, a world unto themselves.

The first optics a birder needs is a good binocular. If you then want to see birds far away, such as at a wetland, grassland, or the ocean, you will really enjoy a spotting scope.
If you want a top quality scope but at a moderate price, we recommend the Vortex Razor.
When we tested it for a review, we found it the equal of scopes costing two or three times a much.
For help choosing the best binocular for your eyes, hands, and budget.
