Meet Tone Customs

Meet Tone Customs

We’re birders, yes! But does that mean we have to sacrifice style for comfort? Hell no! We love our gear, and we love to look good while schlepping it around in the field. That’s why we teamed up with Tone Customs to create a series of binocular straps that combine utility and style. And along the way, we got to know Tone, the man behind the magic who hand crafted each strap.

New York City Audubon

New York City Audubon

Cities, to the surprise of many, offer some of the best opportunities for birding anywhere in the U.S., especially during spring and fall migration. In New York City, for instance, close to 300 species have been reported over the years in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. These places provide vital stopover habitat for birds on their journeys, but as more people crowd into cities, squeezing these greenspaces, urban biodiversity and bird conservation have never been more important. That’s why we’re celebrating the pioneering work of New York City Audubon, a grassroots nonprofit that has been working for over 40 years to make cities safe for birds and birding accessible to all New Yorkers.

The Birdsong Project

The Birdsong Project

Birds are some of the greatest musicians, and, believe it or not, their mastery takes practice. Nearly half of the world’s 10,000 bird species are songbirds, and their rich and complex songs are learned, performed using a specialized voice box only they possess. A whole lot of people began listening to them in 2020, when the normal roar of daily life turned quiet; the birds, in a world of their own, never quit singing. It wasn’t hard to also hear the message they have been sending for years: that they are in serious decline worldwide and need our help.
