Hi

At that price, most of the better choices will be porro prism models, since phase-corrected roof prism models (you will need phase-corrected) cost over $200. Here are some good choices. 8x is listed, but for most of these, a 10x model is also available if you prefer 10x. All have good eye relief and the close focus needed for a good birding bino.
