Swarovski Curio 7x21 Swarovski Curio
Oct. 2021  Swarovski's new Curio binocular is so tiny that it seems to disappear in the hand. Good at concerts, plays, and other public events where you might want to see closer without drawing attention to yourself.

THIS MORNING OUTSIDE with Diane

American Robin

Here's what's happening in my backyard on this hot Fourth of July day. The mother robin isn't sitting on her eggs. Instead, she's standing on the edge of the nest with her mouth open.

REVIEW ZEISS SFL

Zeiss SFL
Zeiss SFL Binocular

It seems that Zeiss has landed in a sweet spot with the new SFL binocular. 

High quality optics. The right size. Comfortable to carry and look through. 

We think birders will love it.

REVIEW  SWAROVSKI  NL PURE

Swarovski NL Pure
Swarovski NL Pure

It's stunning from the moment you meet it. We've never seen a binocular with a shape quite like the NL Pure. It seems it was made to fit your hand. It has the widest field of view of any top binocular. It comes in various models, including the amazingly usable 12x42.

REVIEW NEW KOWA SCOPE

none

Kowa Prominar TSN-99A
Kowa TSN-99A

Kowa's new high-end spotting scope embodies the fluorite crystal objective lens and the fine engineeering that put Kowa Prominar scopes in the top tier of birding optics. This is the biggest Kowa spotting scope.

This 99mm Kowa scope just became available in 2021. We compare it to the 95mm Swarovski ATX scope.
