They are designed for low light situations like stargazing, but I have taken them hiking to view birds. Relatively close birds will be harder to focus on, and after a while, these can get a little heavy around the neck. I would look for binos that are lighter and more designed for bird watching. I got this pair based on a recommendation in an astronomy book, perhaps a birding book will give you an idea about good birding binos. Good luck!

I'm not a bird watcher but I'd say yes. I find them great for everything I've used them for.

Absolutely. A tripod is recommended.

not close up (inside 30 feet), but would work great at a distance
