Bird watching binoculars are specifically designed with the bird lover in mind. These binoculars feature magnifications best suited for birding. Ideal birding binoculars are typically 8x40 or 8x42. This allows them to be compact enough for taking with while providing enough magnification and light to come through to allow birds at a distance to be seen. Birding binoculars are well suited for watching any type of nature from a distance. Many are wide angle to provide a maximum field of view to allow tracking quick moving birds and other objects.
