Frequented by birds in search of places to feed and nest, lakes attract a variety of fascinating wildlife.

For a mid-priced set best suited to bird watching, the Vortex Vanquish binoculars boast waterproof and rubber-coated exteriors with lightweight feel and an easy grip.

With these, a trip to the lake not only offers the peaceful sounds of wildlife, but the possibility of spotting some exotic species of feather-clad friends.

Just don’t get caught. No one will believe that you were actually looking at birds.
