[CT Birds] Binocular or Binoculars?...

I beg to differ.  "Binocular" is an adjective (as in "binocular
vision").  "Binoculars" is a noun.

Subject: [CT Birds] Binocular recommendation

I had a Swarovski 10X  binocular (the word is singular, like bicycle),
which was too shaky and bulky so I sold it.  I now have a 8X Minox
(which is very good and half as expensive) and my favorite binoc, the
Canon 15X image stabilizer.  One binoc for each shoulder, but much
easier to carry  than my spotting scope.  The Canon locks in a great
view, even if your hands shake, tracking a flying bird, or even in an
idling car.  It also comes in a 8X, which I have for window watching,
and a 12X.
