    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    It’s a good thing for you that they decided you were too big to eat. I’m sure they thought about it.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    I would assume so too, but I did wonder if they took them home for the kiddies. No way to tell.

    What did the eagles do with the fish?

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    I once had a pair come to inspect a maple tree on my property. They rejected it, and I never saw them again.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    My only visit to Texas was before I got more serious about birding, and I had no optics with me. The Scissor-tailed Flycatchers Tyrannus forficatus made the biggest impression on me. As I recall, they would gather on the local wires around dusk.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    Milvus milvus appears to be a magnificent bird, I wish we had them here. I guess the Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is about as close as we can come.

    Hooded Mergansers are a lot of fun to watch. I really like the way they bob up like corks from a dive.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    That may because you are more interested in the birds than accumulating “points”. I share your priorities. I would much rather have watched a great blue heron capture a huge bullfrog than brood about never having seen a Purple-rumped Gadabout.

    Nice photo.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    I had to look up to see what an E190 is. Airplanes are almost as much fun as birds, and much easier to find some of the time.

    I daresay they gave you an absolutely stunning view of all of those.

    We have them, but I’ve never seen one, just the Crested.

    Ho! Ho! Ho! Richard (this is one of my favorite threads)

    I have never lived within their range, alas.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    Titmice are funny. We used to watch them tuck seeds away in wreaths that we hung on a railing outside. I don’t know if they ever came back to get any of those seeds.

    Your binoculars may turn out to be one of the most wonderful things you own. Living birds are among the most wonderful things we can use them on. Enjoy.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    I once saw one catch an enormous bullfrog, but it stalked off into the puckerbrush near the pond, and I didn’t get to watch it go down. I also believe I saw one eat a small muskrat. Again, it was pretty well concealed, but I knew there was a muskrat hole there. It stood there a very long time...

    I gather that in this instance “NV” does not mean night vision.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    I am partial to Cedar Waxwings, and love to watch them hawking insects over a pond. They are beautiful birds.

    I would think that mmight require a certain amount of practice.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    I have seen hawks snatch at a bird that was harassing them, but only once when they were carrying a meal. I once saw a hawk drop a snake while being harried.

    Yesterday, one of our local Red-tailed Hawks.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    Starlings are a bit of a nuisance here. We have Grackles, which show nice iridescence too.

    Connecticut, alas, does not have Magpies.
