Well after looking at dozens of monopods, I chose the carbon fiber Vanguard Elite CP-324 monopod for $99.95 at B&H.

This Vanguard monopod appears to be well made with solid locking collars that open with one twist, is reasonably compact and light and extends to a tall 63.2" (160.5cm), that helps with  high angle bird photography . The unique feature that swayed me is the flat rubber foot which has a retractable spike in the center. This makes for a more secure grip on finished floors and keeps the monopod from sinking into sand and wet soils. I highly recommend the Vanguard Elite CP-324 monopod for quality, features, and value.
