Using optics is a very fun and important aspect to birding. Using binoculars or a scope can provide some amazing images of birds you see and hear in the backyard, on a local trail or a birding hike, across a pond or soaring in the sky. Our staff is here to help you choose the right pair of binoculars or the perfect scope for your purposes. 

When choosing optics consider what you will be using them for: specifically for birdwatching, general nature viewing, or perhaps for watching sporting events. Is the weight or size of the binocular an issue? Perhaps a wide field of view is most important, or a higher magnification. Feel free to stop by the store to look through a few pairs of binoculars and test them out. We'll show you how to compare different models and guide you through the selection process!

We carry the following optic brands.  Contact Wild Birds Unlimited by email or phone for pricing details or visit the store. We look forward to helping you choose the best optic for you!
