I'm looking at binoculars and would like some recommendations from folks who use theirs regularly on the island. I don't mind spending $ on a good pair but I dont think Swarovski's are in my future. I figured that expsure to the salt water atmosphere might be a consideration. Thanks in advance.

Thanks Elbert! I'll check them out.

Nice! They get great reviews and they're very reasonable too! Do you wear contacts or glasses Elbert? Just askin since I wear readers but have excellent distance vision.

btw Do you guys do a fall bird count on the Caye?

the binoculars have an adjust on the eye piece for folks that need glasses.
I don't do any organized events with birdwatchers, they are just too weird a group for me ;-)

Okay, you lucky dog, you dont wear glasses. I asked because some binocs, even with diopter correction adjustments are a pain in the ass for those of us that do.

laugh Lmao, I heard that all the way from here! I was kind of hoping there was a more laid back AC version...dogs, laughing, lunch, some birding and then decide what we should have seen...

Now I'll gladly watch a video instruction, love those suckers, but give me a piece of do it your self fruniture from IKEA and you can forget about it. It takes days to assemble as I sort through what I'm sure are extraneous parts...
