I typically destroy two pairs of binoculars every year performing bird surveys across the Interior West. So I can't purchase anything too expensive.
My brand of choice is the Nikon Monarch. It's a mid-level pair of binoculars with good clarity and not too expensive.
I prefer 10 x 42, even though they can get a bit heavy.

After 30 years of Air Traffic Control, I learned that shock-proof and water-proof and fog-proof are worth the extra cost.
