Great Binos for Young or Beginning Birders

We adults recognize we should be doing all that’s possible to foster the upcoming generation of birders and conservationists. Many Audubon Groups have stated this as a goal and mission for the next few years.

The Central Texas Audubon Society a couple of years ago purchased almost two dozen binoculars for their youth education programs. CTAS supplemented these with field guides in a one to one ratio. The San Antonio Audubon Society Education Outreach Committee has done similarly, purchasing new Vortex Raptor Binoculars in its efforts to grow young birders.

Vortex Raptor Binoculars
 The Vortex Raptor Binoculars are designed specifically with Young Birders in mind. The lightweight bins have sharp optics, and the eyepieces and binocular body are just right for smaller faces and hands. The field of view is great facilitating locating the bird. Focusing is pretty easy, too.

Yet, any small adult beginning birder wanting a lightweight alternative would find them perfectly serviceable as well.

These binoculars are great and well worth the price for your youth or beginning birder program.
