    Found 7x30 Habicht

    ...at a thrift store in a bag with a pair of toy bins for $6.99. They are in ROUGH shape. I wonder if they are worth repair?

    Anyone repairing ZR?

    I am so annoyed with this whole thing. I bought three bins and a scope from Charles over the years. I feel totally ripped off. Especially since I have bins that have a broken objective lens from hitting the cement. He could've at least said "use XXXX company for repairs but be ready to pay".

    Phone Skope adapter

    Has anyone tried these yet? I'm trying to find the length and diameter of the ZR Prime ED2 20-60mm EP. Going to give it a shot.

    ZR never seems to win...

    …"Best Binocular" reviews in magazines. Why not? :smoke:

    Does anyone know if Charles is okay? Seems to be MIA from ZR's facebook page and people are starting to worry...

    Tripod & heads for 82mm scope

    I am looking at tripods for an 82mm scope. The tripod I have is a Manfrotto 3001. Is that macho enough for a scope this size? I don't care for the head it came with (from the Discovery store 100 years ago) at all. Need a new one; preferable with QR. Any thoughts or advice?

    The Big Year (movie)

    The Big Year is opening today across America. Has anyone seen it yet? I'm going in a few hours. So far, the reviews have been fairly positive...even from birders. Can't wait!

    Value of older ZR binocular

    I am considering selling my ZRS HD 8x42 and am wondering what I can expect to get for them. I'm thinking I would put the money toward a ED3 pair. ;) Do binoculars hold any value? Research shows them selling just over $200. If I knock them down lower than that, do you think I would have any...

    ZR Demo sales

    I just purchased a demo 8x43ED2. Hope I don't regret this...I'm not usually one to purchase demo units of anything. :smoke: I was torn...ZR also has a few 7x36 demo units available....but they cost more than the 8x43. Wonder why that is...is something really wrong with the 8x? **EDIT** Wrong...

    ZR at the Midwest Birding Symposium?

    Hi, Charles! I have been dragging my feet on getting a new bino, but will be attending the MBS in September (Ohio). I know a few of the Alpha companies will be there as well as Ben with EO, but will you have any representation? Thanks...would love to try some out in person!

    When is a birder no longer "new"?

    Serious question...what should we know to move on to the amateur catergory? I call myself "new" but am I really? Just looking for thought or discussion on this.

    Books for small children?

    I'm looking for bird books for kids 3 to 4 years old. I want more than "stories" or picture books, but I'm having trouble finding anything between pictures of birds, nests, trees, etc., and TMI for the age group. Thoughts?

    If money were no issue...

    ...and you wanted to buy TWO pair of bins, which would they be and why?

    7x question.

    I have a 6.5x32 EO Raven that I like very much for it's size and portability. Can anyone tell me what advantages I would gain over the 6.5 by moving to a 7x36 Zen ED2? Thanks!

    Song Sparrow?

    Song Sparrow? Greene County, Ohio Having trouble with this bird...at first I thought it was a female House Finch, but they don't have stripes on their heads and they've been at the feeders at the same time as this sparrow, making ruling them out easier. At this point, I've looked at so many...

    Opposable Chums: Guts & Glory at The World Series of Birding

    A great film about birding and birders! I first saw it in September at the Midwest Birding Symposium screening then received it as a Christmas gift. Given that it's about birding, I give it four stars out of five. Has anyone else seen it? http://www.opposablechums.com/about_the_film.html

    Will a hawk try to take a dog?

    I put up a new bird feeding station last Saturday and have since noticed a hawk (think it's a RTH) checking it out. Just a couple fly-bys until today when it landed in a neighbors tree. It didn't stay long, but it wasn't hanging out BEFORE I put up the feeders. I have an eight pound Chihuahua...

    Large bird in Ohio -- no picture

    Driving today, around noon, about 100 yards away high in a tree... LARGE (looked heavy, even at my distance from the bird), light bellied bird. The head sort of blended in with the background and only the heaviness of the bird stuck out to me. Didn't have a place to stop or have binoculars...
