Birding Gear

Besides binoculars and field guides, there are a number of items that will make birdwatching easier, more comfortable, and more enjoyable. You can get straps and supports for your binoculars, holders for your bird books, waterproof notebooks, birding apps for your phone or computer, photography gear, a blind/hide, camping gear, bags, shoes, and a variety of clothing. Don’t be intimidated, though. A pair of binoculars and a field guide is all you really need.
