Thanks to everyone who replied. There were several votes of confidence
for Burgess, and also Nicon, Celestron (Eagle Optics), the Pentax PCF WP
8x40 and Swift Ultralights, plus the recommendations that went to the
whole list. I have looked at those I could and passed on recommendations
to her. I will probably be getting myself the Burgess or Pentax, but I
know Nicon cameras and so want to look at those binoculars first.
Thanks again for the quick responses!
Still no Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, though. We do have several
Black-throated Blue Warblers.
I have a daughter on the west coast looking for a pair of binoculars
for occasional bird and whale watching use. I remember someone posted
that the Burgess Binoculars (http://burgessoptical.com/) were a very
high quality for the price. Does anyone else have a recommendation
for good quality optics for around $100? I have not had a chance to
look at the Burgess, and a lot of the <$100 binoculars I have looked
at were really not very good.
To add some bird related content, I still haven't seen any
Rose-breasted Grosbeaks in my area (just south of Hillsborough)
though we have had them as yard birds the last few years.
