Each week we start with a reader question to get right to birding issues you want to know about. This week, Rich from Missouri asks...
"My wife bought me a nice pair of binoculars to replace an old pair I destroyed (dropped them off my motorcycle). How can I be sure I don't have an accident with this new pair? She'd never forgive me!"
While accidents can always happen, you can minimize the risk of damage to your binoculars if you practice good binocular care. From using the proper accessories to treating this tool as the expensive optical equipment it is, both in the field and in the closet, it is easy to ensure your binoculars last for years!
Do you have a birding question you'd like answered? Submit it to Mailbag Monday and your question may be featured in an upcoming week!
