Best Binoculars for Hummingbirds

To observe hummingbirds in the wild, a great pair of binoculars is your best bet for sussing out a ruby throat over a black chin. So many of these little birds look the same from a distance, and sometimes even up close in the wrong lighting. If you’re out hiking or just watching your feeder at home, keeping a pair of binoculars or monoculars close by will help you get a better view of these fast-moving birds.
