    2017 Biggest Week in Amerian Birding Festival

    I will....but I want to have all my eggs in one basket first..;) I will say I don't have any eye relief issues with the 8X32 Conquest HD whatsoever. It's about exactly "spot-on" as is said. That's with my usual Ray-Ban frames. I have not yet tried the Conquest HD's with my Oakley's.

    Thanks Ted! Hmmmm...so the BX-3 experiment didn't turn out. So what did you do with the Tioga HDs? I've used the Conquest HDs 8X32s the last few times I've been birding...I have to say....:t:

    Hey David.. I really did not compare those two...since the Trinovid HD 8X32 won't be available here for a while. The brief time I looked at it....optics/eye relief/close focus won't be a concern, IMO... The only issue for ME would be if it truly IS an 8X32 with less than 400ft/1000yds FOV...

    The Optics Tent... Love the Optics Tent. Basically any major binocular brand is there...with binoculars/spotting scopes to try. Everyone was very considerate and helpful from every booth I went to. I compared my SF(gray) to the current SF(black). Of course optically I could tell no...

    The SFs size was one of the reasons I never used it. But you have to remember it weighs pretty close to a Ultravid HD + 42mm. It's hard to beat for sure. Yep....a growing trend for sure. I'm either going to look for birds OR I'm going to take pictures of birds....That's how I roll. Taking...

    Yeah Bob, it WOULD! Thanks for keeping me straight! The Trinovids... Yeah you could tell most of the Trinovids were well used. Obviously is was a smart choice when purchased... Yeah it could be a regional thing...but there were literally folks from everywhere there....Florida, California...

    Most popular brand/binocular... So I'm an optics geek....I accept that! So I kinda notice what others are using. For the most part the brands are not nearly as varied as here on BF. Number one brand in terms of popularity was Nikon...but it was close with the top three in terms of...

    Got back last night from the MaGee Marsh Biggest Week in American Birding. It was my first time TO the event and my first time to Magee Marsh. I have to say...it was GREAT! Basically we birded from 630AM to around 820PM both Saturday and Sunday. Of course there was a BRIEF break for lunch...

    Just kinda scanning some of the info/data coming in for the Magee Marsh area... Doesn't look like this coming weekend is going to be the best.... North winds seem to have slowed down the migration a little.... Good luck to those heading up this weekend!

    Hey Bruce.. ALL I'm going to check out up there is BIRDS! Seriously! I've never been. Last year's trip fell thru. I'm flying up to Columbus next Friday night so basically I have Saturday, Sunday, and maybe Monday am as flying out Monday afternoon. The hard part is which binoculars to pack! ;)
