The Birder® Tripod

An ingeniously simple, stable, and elegant camera/scope support system!

Tripods are often overlooked in the scope purchasing experience, but they are a very important piece of the puzzle. A shaky tripod with even the best telescope drastically reduces use-ability and resolution. The Birder® Tripod is manufactured exclusively for The Audubon Shop. Extensive and intensive field testing by professional birding guides and users from around the globe have consistently earned raves and high praise!

What sets this tripod apart?


The Birder® is the only tripod currently available with just two leg sections!

  • Each leg has thick soft foam leg wraps on the upper leg section for comfortable transport

What’s so good about having just two leg sections?

  • FAR GREATER STABILITY Two leg sections = one “joint” / Fewer joints = Less weakness and flex = Less Vibration
  • LIGHTENING QUICK SET-UP with only one set of three leg locks to manage
  • LIGHTWEIGHT (4.2LB without a head) thanks to the absence of weighty extra hardware
