Hello, these last years I fell deep into Astronomy and love taking my telescope into the dark sky during the new moon, (1 Viewer)

But, a few weeks ago I bought a $10 pair of micro binoculars and went to the beach in santa monica,
where I looked at the school of birds that I admire, the ones that follow the tide,
they run away from the waves and then rapidly feed during the 10 second intervals,
looking at them from even those basic lenses was a beautiful experience.

This forced me to obsess and I quickly found a 9x25 nikon vintage,
returned to beach and I was amazed at how much more these lenses connected me to the birds.
I'm absolutely addicted at this point,
I joined the Audubon Society today which feels amazing and have seen so many incredible photos you all have taken. thank you all.

Now I have spent the last two days searching for my Professional Grade birdwatching Optics,
If anyone has a used pair they want to sell me, I'd be honored, since they are coming from a very special place.

Looking forward to going on adventures around the world with these new eyes.

Hi Oren and a warm welcome from me too.

where I looked at the school of birds that I admire, the ones that follow the tide,
they run away from the waves and then rapidly feed during the 10 second intervals,
They sound very like Sanderlings and, yes they are wonderful to watch.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I hope to hear about all the birds you see when out and about.
