SNEAK PEEK! Birder’s Guide to Gear, 2017


The 2017 issue of Birder’s Guide to Gear has been printed and is beginning to arrive in members’ mailboxes. But you don’t have to wait until your hard copy to see what’s inside. And neither do non-members. You can see the entirety of this issue of Birder’s Guide online right now. Just click here.

Whether your gear is shiny and new or old and battle-scarred, the mission of Birder’s Guide to Gear is to help you get the most out of it. What exactly constitutes birding gear? Well, these days a camera is pretty common. And field guides…definitely field guides. Now expand your thinking a bit. What about smartphone apps? Luggage? How about shoes, even? This issue features information on all of these topics. We want you to spend more time enjoying the birds–not worrying about aching feet or slow cameras. 


Birder’s Guide only exists because our talented pool of ABA members is willing to share its knowledge. You can join in by writing an article. By the same token, we depend on our members to give us feedback about what they want–and don’t want–to see in Birder’s Guide. Take just a moment to share your thoughts with us by leaving a comment below. We look forward to hearing from you!
