10x42 SLC are among the only 10x I would use. They would certainly work for owling and raptors.

Greetings Matt,

I use the SLC 10x42 all the time .... day and nite . Everyone see differently so the only way to know is to try them . If you're unsure, buy from a retailer like Cabelas that has a good customer satisfaction policy. Get them while you can !

For use in the dark I would prefer a greater FOV than a 10x42 can offer. However, the SLC is one of the best 10x42 available. Your friend should make sure that it´s the version with the Swarobright coatings. These coatings were introduced around 2000.
