Recommended Gear

If you’re looking to get into birding and birdwatching, it’s essential to have the right equipment. One of the most important pieces of gear is a good pair of binoculars, with a magnification of between 8x to 10x and an objective lens diameter of 42mm. Alternatively, you might consider investing in a camera with a good zoom lens or a spotting scope coupled to your smartphone. To help you make an informed decision, I’ve classified the products into three categories: binoculars, spotting scopes, and cameras with telephoto lenses. Whatever equipment you choose, remember to appreciate the beauty of wild birds, preserve the nature and have fun.
