I would go for a manual everytime. The clutch and gearbox are light, you don't get low range with an automatic, and you have less control over what the car is doing. An automatic transmission is somewhat contrary to the rationale of getting a vehicle like a Forester.

That said, it probably doesn't make any difference to your birding experience as to whether your bird hide has an automatic or manual transmission.

Regards, Laurie.

I'm about to buy a Subaru Forester XS, but I'm having trouble
deciding on manual vs. automatic transmission.  I'm leaning
towards the latter for convenience, but would appreciate any
feedback on real world birding experience.
