I guess the bird world is slowing down after breeding season, now that Autumn is approaching (OK, it's here officially, but it doesn't look or feel it here), there are less birds in the bushes and...

Thanks for the reply, Frank. Too bad about Tract and Nikon. I'm sure CMBO is a good organization-just curious about why it's limited like this. So, no used binoculars for sale then, I take it to...

Yes, I know what you mean about things coming together, when all works as it should, and being able to see better than usual. 40-50 meters is a long way, similar to my regular viewing distance, and...
