In addition to a quality set of binoculars, a field guide is the next essential bit of gear for the well-equipped birder. Bird Watcher's Digest has put together the perfect reference package to complement our New Birder's Optics Kit. The New Birder's Guide by Bill Thompson, III, portrays 300 of the most common birds in the U.S. and Canada without overwhelming the novice. It includes easy-to-understand drawings and maps, how and where to look, great ID basics, and facts about each species.
Team the book with our condor satchel to keep everything together. The BWD Condor Satchel is a handy waist pack, equipped with six pockets. It includes a convertible and adjustable shoulder/waist strap equipped with a quick-release buckle. Features the official Bird Watcher's Digest logo in stylish neon green.
