See You on the Road!


As we swing in to spring, some Eagle Optics optics gurus are packing their bags and traveling to birding festivals around the country. We always bring plenty of gear--binoculars and spotting scopes in a variety of major brands--for you to try and compare. Tripods, too!

Is this your year to take your birding to the next level? Yes? Then, evaluate your birding optics. If your current binocular isn't keeping up with your skill level, talk to us. We'll take the time, whether at our festival booth, or over the phone from our home office in Wisconsin, to guide you to a binocular or scope that will help make you a better birder.

Then, plan on attending one of the many outstanding birding festivals in the U.S. in the coming months. With all the learning opportunities at hand (field trips, seminars, guest speakers), a birding festival can change your birding habits, sharpen your perspective, and give you skills and memories to last a lifetime.

If you happen to be at one of the festivals below, please stop at the Eagle Optics booth, say hello, and get your hands on your next best friend--your new binocular or scope. We'd love to see you on the road!

  1. It is ridiculous that you list no event in Florida or elsewhere in the southeastern US

  2. Hi David,
    This was a partial listing, mentioning only the spring shows we'll be attending (as a vendor) this year. We actually do attend Space Coast Birding Festival in Florida in January. We have a small staff, and if there were more of us available to travel, we would happily consider attending more festivals. For a complete list of festivals in the U.S., see:
    All the best,

  3. It is wonderful that you published this list. Now I can keep tabs on you guys! Wish I could join you at some of these wonderful places! Keep up the good work!
