September 14, 2007, Newsletter Issue #81: Using Binoculars for Bird Watching

Tip of the Week

No bird watching or wild life vacations should be undertaken without a pair of binoculars, but learning to do birding with them takes a little practice.

The secret is to square yourself up to the bird. Your whole body, including your feet, should turn to face the bird. It wonŽt work if you turn just your head. Raise your head so that youŽre looking straight at the bird. Your whole head should tilt up to face the bird -- not just your eyes looking up.

Now put your binoculars squarely in front your eyes. YouŽll find youŽre looking right at the bird. Practice this technique consciously for a while. It will soon become automatic.
