The Binocular Site

The Binocular Site is an independent guide for all things related to the world of binoculars.

We know that there is no shortage of binocular sites on the internet where you can buy binoculars online, but we’re different from other sites for a couple of reasons:

  • We’re not manufacturers or vendors trying to push a limited selection of products. In fact, we don’t care if you ever buy a pair of binoculars in your life.
  • We don’t have any particular hobby focus. Most binocular sites on the internet are run by people with very specific concerns, such as hunting, birding or astronomy. While you'll find we develop content to cater to them all, you won't see any one concern be our specific focus.

We’re here to help you learn all you want to learn about binoculars before you make your next binocular purchase -- whether it’s your first or thirty first. We hope to give you a comprehensive overview of the world of binoculars, with pages covering everything from beginner binoculars to obscure models and uses.

Our focus is on you, the consumer

The Binocular Site’s primary aim is to help you learn about the best buys, best practices and best sets of binoculars to match your needs. We’re interested in all the same things you are, and we hope to anticipate some things you might not have thought about. Some of the subjects we include:

  • Types of binoculars from compact to giant
  • Specialty binoculars for purposes from birding to hunting to astronomy
  • Binocular related products such as night vision and rangefinders
  • A 35+ page guide to all the major manufacturers, from Alpen to Zeiss
  • and much more

We think you’ll find information that is not only valuable but also interesting, as you view the pages of our site. Binoculars have a long and interesting history, from the invention of the telescope to the advent of today’s gadgets such as rangefinders and digital camera binoculars.

We hope you enjoy surfing The Binocular Site. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us.

From Alaska to Florida and everywhere in between, the United States has some fantastic spots to catch some of the most beautiful and rare birds any birding enthusiast could hope for. We know that many of our readers are bird watchers and thought we'd compile a list featuring the best North America has to offer.

On the listing for each birding location, you'll find a short description about the birding spot as well as reviews on the spot from fellow bird watchers. We encourage you to not only bookmark this section to watch it grow, but also to leave reviews of the spots you've been fortunate enough to experience yourself. See the full list of bird watching spots.
