I usually wear a thin pair of leather shooting gloves for cold weather birding. The leather is extremely soft and there's a hole in one index finger so you can make finer adjustments with your bare finger. They're surprisingly warm down to about zero F. although I also carry insulated mittens as a backup.
Thin deerskin gloves are an alternative I've used for years for photography while cross country skiing. Again, surprisingly warm despite the light weight and they allow you to handle binocs or cameras, although you may have to take one off at times to adjust a camera.

I'm in need of gloves to keep my frozen fingers warm while I look for
winter birds. Gloves that will also let me maneuver the focus on my
binoculars. Every time I've bought a pair of gloves that looks perfect,
I've been disappointed.
So, I turn to you for suggestions, and you're welcome to reply to the list,
since there are probably others with the same problem.
