    Woodpeckers causing power outages in Ireland

    This video is in French, but the images clearly show the problem linked to the Woodpecker. It is mentioned that 100,000 posts have been damaged by the Woodpecker and 12,000 must be replaced...

    AOS NACC/SACC taxonomic committee governance and structures (no discussions on patronyms)

    I don't know about the future, but with the death of Canadian technical advisor Normand David, the Classification and Nomenclature Committee (NACC) has unfortunately lost a great deal of expertise. On the other hand, Birds Canada and Québec Oiseaux send a press release announcing that they...

    Why are there so few x9 binoculars?

    In my part of Canada, regarding 9x, what is available (at least most visible) in stores are the Pentax (Ricoh) SD 9X42 WP open bridge binoculars, an inexpensive model .

    Current fuss in North America about eponymous English bird names

    Are there eponymous bird names in all languages? There don't seem to be many in German?

    Current fuss in North America about eponymous English bird names

    It's not easy to insert ourself into a discussion that has been going on for six months, but I will take the liberty of informing you that the «Helm Dictionary of Scientific Bird Names» is available in pdf here: http://www.avesdecostarica.org/uploads/7/0/1/0/70104897/scientific-bird-names.pdf

    Yes, the Monarch M7 replaces de Monarch 7.

    Lot of models in Vortex binoculars!

    I use Nikon Monarch 7 and Vortex Diamondback binoculars and prefer my Diamondbacks. The grip is better for me and the wheel is less rigid.

    Nikon Monarch HG 8X30 vs Nikon Monarch 7 8x30

    If you are considering the purchase of Monarch HG binoculars, you must now consider the arrival of the Monarch M7 (different from the Monarch 7) which offers practically the equivalent at a lower cost.

    Monarch M7+ 8x30

    As a reminder, the old model is named “Monarch 7” and the new generation is named “Monarch M7”. It is available in 8x30 for around $600 CAD and the Monach HGs seem to be twice the price from what I see in stores. Considering the comments appearing on the forum, it seems that it is more...

    Best Lenses for Busy City Bird Photography?

    The best choice would probably be to use a "Bridge" type camera. I suggest you look for the Sony RX10 IV which is an excellent choice. In this group, there are many models available in different price ranges.

    Why is Alpha better than high grade.

    I was amazed by the effectiveness of the image stabilization mounted on binoculars. I believe that this technology is here to stay in the world of binoculars. Now, we will have to see when a manufacturer will decide to produce one without compromising on the quality of the optics. One day, not...

    Why is Alpha better than high grade.

    In fact, this type of analysis and the graphs that follow are very useful when we first set the amount of money we are willing to invest...... and it is not the subject of this discussion.
  15. Rolosama

    Why is Alpha better than high grade.

    This graph is not stupid, but yes it is subjective since in terms of the quality of binoculars we probably do not give the same importance to the different characteristics that can be taken into account. For example, how do binoculars behave at -5 degrees?

    Why is Alpha better than high grade.

    It's not divine, but it's probably not helpful to the conversation you want to have in this forum thread since in fact the price paid is not the subject of discussion.

    Why is Alpha better than high grade.

    It is the principle of the curve that I wanted to remind... You pay a lot for little improvement with binoculars of the Alpha category... The link is here: Best Binoculars: The Cornell Lab Review 2013

    First Binoculars

    You can take a look at the products of the Celestron brand, or see what RSBP offers. A used product is a good choice for what you intend to do with it.

    Why is Alpha better than high grade.

    A few years ago, the Cornell laboratory had already done the exercise of comparing the quality and price of binoculars for bird watching. The result clearly indicates that the gains in quality are minimal once the $1000 mark is passed.

    Migration resource?

    Daurian Redstarts are short-haul migrants who move from Russia and northern China to southern China. The departure from Russia begins in September, the return from Hong Kong is from November. Redstarts arrive in Myanmar in November and return in late March-early April.
