How wonderful is September, when the warblers come through Iowa!

If your interest in birds is serious, you might want to get a better binocular. Like a Vortex Diamondback.
It has good optical quality and an extremely wide field of view. It's waterproof and has a lifetime guarantee.
It comes in several sizes. We recommend the 8x42 model.
A field guide (bird book) will help you to recognize the birds that
share your life.
One that we like a lot is the National Geographic Guide to Birds of North America, Fifth Edition. It covers all the
birds in North America, and the illustrations are beautiful.
