Here are links to some items you might find useful as you embark on your birding adventure, or for friends on their way there:
1. Trekking poles — “…these poles exceeded my expectations and at a fair price to boot. I’m not clumsy and there were still a handful of times I may have seriously sprained a knee or ankle if it weren’t for the stability of these poles.”
2. Scrunchable hat for men and women — “Two plane trips and many hours later, I pulled it out of my bag and it looked great. The mesh band allows airflow and the strap kept it secure during a very bumpy boat ride.”
3. Sports Water Bottle – 40 Oz, Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel
4. Women’s Walking Socks — “I loooove these socks! I can’t not wear them! They are so plush and snug.. its like hugs for your feet. They are not hot.”
5. Waterproof Hooded Rain Poncho for Adult with Pocket
6. First Aid Emergency Kit
7. Baleaf Women’s Joggers Lightweight Hiking Pants Zipper Pockets High Waist Quick Dry Travel Camping UPF50+ — “I have an up coming trip where I’ll be spending most of my time in the rainforest and needed something lightweight that would keep my cool and dry. These were recommended on a lot of blogs so thought I’d try a pair. After I tried these on, I was in love!!!! They fit amazing! They have a slight stretch, lightweight, have zippered pockets, cuff at the bottom (perfect if I want to pull them up if I’m hot). All other brands just look frumpy and these actually look great and stylish!”
8. Waterproof women’s walking shoes — “Very comfortable, these shoes are anti-slip, waterproof and remain soft for hiking. Tested in snow, protect against cold and humidity.”
9. Vortex optics diamondback 10 42 roof prism binocular — “Really good high class binoculars, I have just been to New Zealand and used them on whale watching and birding they produce a very good clear image.”
10. Peterson Field Guide To Birds of North America, Second Edition — “Overall this is the best bird book around. It is not a cookie cutter book. It is reminiscent of older style bird books that provide lots of additional information specific to a particular bird or group of birds.” “The most birds and details on each one. If you are a birder you must have this book!”
