What should you get for the birder in your life? What about a waterproof birding journal for those rainy days, a Universal Binocular Tripod Mount to stifle the shakes, or maybe a bluebird nest necklace?
Exactly what will appear under the tree for my birding husband is a surprise, but it won’t be a witty t-shirt or a bird-tourist mug. He got those last year.
This year I expanded my online search and hit the jackpot.
The big surprise has been how fun and educational “birder shopping” can be. I’m still trying to choose between items stashed in virtual shopping carts spread across three websites.
So Yes, Virginia, there’s something for everyone in a vast range of prices and varying degrees of sophistication. (Don’t spread this around, but most of the stuff I’ve picked out, I really want for myself.)
