I am looking around for a good scope to buy for birding but I am unsure what is best and don’t want to spent more than 250 dollars any thoughts are welcome. 
thanks in advance!

But I don't know about the performance when birding with a scope in the '$250 or less' price range.  Sure, you can find some, but they may not be any better than your binos.

Don't forget a tripod will probably be a separate purchase.

Without being too nosy, what's your goal for this scope?  Obviously birding, but any particular types?  Knowing that may help with recommendations.

I am particularly interested in looking out onto the ocean, I currently have a tripod that will fit most things.

Hi, Nivalis.  I am just starting out and Hubby got me this scope. https://www.amazon.com/Visionking-30-90x100-Spottingscope-Waterproof-Monoculars/dp/B00GH2Q3TM

It's not much over $250 and works great for my current purposes.  If I find I have need, I can always upgrade later.  

 

I use my own tripod with it.
