The 2016 issue of Birder’s Guide to Gear is now being printed. That means that, if you’re an ABA member, you should find it in your mailbox in the next couple weeks. But you don’t have to wait until then to see what’s inside. And neither do non-members. You can see the entirety of this issue of Birder’s Guide online right now. Just click here.

Some people are real gear-heads and love checking out all the newest products, comparing them to what’s already out there, and making their own decisions about what to buy. But if you’re like me, you just want someone you trust to tell you what how to get the most bang for your buck.

That’s where Birder’s Guide to Gear comes in. Every year, we assemble a group of experts and ask them their opinions on the latest birding gear. In this issue, Ashli Gorbet lays out the options for using GPS for better birding. Ted Floyd explains the virtues and limitations of using a small camera for bird photography. Sharon Stiteler shares her tips for finding convertible field pants. Heidi Trudell elucidates us on methods and gear useful in helping to prevent birds from colliding with windows.
And Elise Faike introduces us to Chums, a diverse line of field screen-shot-2016-11-18-at-10-47-12-pmgear that makes products that can be used from everything to securing your hat and sunglasses to protecting your lips from sun- and windburn.

Please let us know what you’d like to see reviewed or discussed in the next issue. Even better, consider writing an article for us. Birder’s Guide only exists because our talented pool of ABA members is willing to sharing its knowledge. By the same token, we at the ABA depend on our members to give us feedback about what they want–and don’t want–to see in ABA publications. Please consider taking just a moment to share your thoughts with us.
