I live on a bluff in Pensacola, Florida. The view is great of water traffic and birds in flight over Escambia Bay. It would be great if I could sit on my front porch and get a better view of the world on and around the bay.
What binoculars or scope would you recommend ?

A good spotting scope on a tripod will be the most effective and most versatile. For home use, it need not be waterproof or especially rugeed. You may also wish to use it for some astronomy.

A scope that uses standard 1.25" astronomy eyepieces will give you a tremendous range of magnification potential, should you opt ot do some astronomy.

Our most popular scopes for your application are the Meade ETX-90, or Celestron C-90 spotting scope, ... scope.html. mounted on a good camera tripod such as the Bogen 3175N kit, ... d-kit.html
