The Right Binoculars for Bird Watching


Bird watchers in particular have high demands on binoculars. After all, they often have to recognize every detail of the plumage in order to correctly identify the bird.

Color Fidelity and Light Intensity

Not only sharpness and detail accuracy is required, but also color fidelity. Distorted colors can negatively affect the determination. Because many birds (and also mammals) are mainly active at dawn and dusk, the binoculars need a high light intensity. It can be calculated by dividing the front lens size by the magnification and multiplying the result by itself. The larger the number, the brighter the image.

Magnification and Field of View

A small field of view makes it difficult to target flying birds or running animals. Therefore, an eight to tenfold magnification is sufficient for observation. A higher value often means that you cannot hold the binoculars still and only get shaky pictures. But if you want to observe waterfowl, for example, which often swim at a greater distance, you need at least tenfold magnification. If that is not enough, it is worth considering an additional spotting scope.

Apart from these optical properties, the binoculars should be suitable for outdoor use. Therefore: preferably waterproof, not too heavy and with a good grip, so that the binoculars lie comfortably and securely in the hand when observing birds.
