Amazon’s Prime Day is going on now through Wednesday night. The annual sale is geared more toward tech products than birding items, but we came across the following deals that might interest birdwatchers.
Bushnell Legend L-Series 10x42mm Binoculars
Amazon has Prime Day sales on a boatload of inexpensive binoculars from brands that we have not heard of. So, if you’re willing to roll the dice on a pair for less than $50 or $100, go for it. But if you’re looking for a name-brand glass, the only one we found is the Bushnell Legend L-Series 10×42. Bushnell is one of the oldest and most established binocular brands, so if you’re in the market for a quality, mid-market binocular, this is a good deal. Order now!
Bird feeders that cling to a window are a great way to bring birds close to you, and they reduce the likelihood that birds will hit your window when they take wing. This one has a removable tray with drain holes. It’s easy to clean and is made of acrylic, so you can watch the birds from inside. Indigo Bunting not included. Order now!

These 15-inch-long tube feeders have six feeding ports for all of the finches, cardinals, and other seed-eating birds in your yard. Order now!
Binocular harness strap
A harness will help take the weight of wearing binoculars or a camera off your neck. Once it is set up, removing and replacing your binoculars from the harness strap and your body is quick and simple. When you’re in the field and you want to share your binoculars or put them away, you simply unclasp the quick-release clips. Compatible with most binoculars and cameras. The harness is fully adjustable to fit a wide range of people (one size fits all). Order now!
Outdoor sun hat
For long days outside in the sun, it’s important to wear a hat. This breathable mesh hat from Jane Shine has an internal drawstring so it will fit pretty much anyone’s head. It offers wind and sun protection, and when you don’t need it, it folds up so you can carry it in a bag or a pocket. Order now! And if you would like a style with more color options, check out this bucket hat.
Osprey travel backpacks
These backpacks hold a total volume of 40 liters, they offer lockable duffel-style access to the main compartment, and they meet carry-on size restrictions for most airlines. There’s a padded laptop and tablet sleeve, two front mesh water-bottle pockets, and a scratch-free pocket for sunglasses or smaller devices. A version with a women’s specific fit is also available.
