Let Us Help You Sight In Your Binoculars!

If you have ever struggled with seeing a clear picture through your binoculars or the picture has always been fuzzy, there is a chance your optics aren't dialed in specifically to your unique eyes.  Many binoculars offer manual adjustment to one of the individual optics because most people's left and right eyes aren't matched.  Often times, people are unaware of this and think it's them when many times there is a fix for the problem.

We have created a video to walk you through the process of adjusting the side to side placement and focus of each optic for personalizing your binoculars to YOU.  We never recommend sharing binoculars because everyone's vision is different.  We have had countless experiences with new birders who thought they needed new optics when all they needed to do was dial them in.  This can be a life-changing experience for those that think everything they're doing is wrong.

Don't let this drive you away from searching for birds and getting into a hobby that offers so much enjoyment.  Before you think your binoculars are broken or you'll never get it, try some of our tips.

    Hey you two:
    Just watched your video and learned alot! You did a great presentation!! We love watching birds!! We have a beautiful
    little area in our backyard to do just that. It is a bird oasis….a little waterfall going into a small pond with some nice
    shade trees around it. I have planted many flowers and plants around it that attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and lots
    of cardinals, blue jays, mockingbirds (our state bird), etc. In fact, during the last couple weeks, I have even had a pair of
    bluebirds!! We hadn’t seen a bluebird in many years and were quite thrilled!! So glad you two are both so involved in all
    of the beautiful things in nature!!

      That sounds like a great little oasis! I’m glad you finally got some bluebirds too. Water and cover are two huge attractants so I’m sure you’re going to experience even more in the future. Cheers!

    Love this! You know we love the birds too. Mark has seen lots of bluebirds on the rail trail, and in the park, this winter, but none have found our backyard like they have in previous years. Dried worms out all winter and our most frequent visitors for the worms are catbirds and starlings. And a starling family has taken over the bluebird house. Ugh. Though Mark reminded me that if starlings were in pretty colors we would be thrilled to have them! True. Great info – thank you.

      Yeah, Starlings= a love/hate relationship. The males are pretty beautiful really but they do reak havoc. We have had nothing but House Sparrow issues with our Bluebird boxes. If a Starling is getting in you may think about getting a new box with a hole sized for Bluebirds. A starling should be way too big to get in a bluebird box. We have also never had our Bluebirds touch our dried meal worms but they really like water if you’re able to offer that. Good luck, thanks for commenting!

    Thanks Josh. We thought we did have a bluebird house, with a small enough hole that wouldn’t allow other birds to get in – but I guess not. One year we had an adorable wren. Mark is content with any bird who wants to make their home there 🙂
