What did you see in your binoculars today? (1 Viewer)


Out Birding....
United States
Male Kingfisher.... I was walking along a lake and spooked it, ..it flew a couple of hundred yards. I re-traced by steps and snuck up on it carefully to get within 20-30 feet. Awesome view.

A playful group of six long-tailed bushtits came foraging in my garden today. I'd seen a single one last year, but no group yet. Great little birds with a very peculiar body shape.


missing the neotropics
No binoculars but five species of parrots and parakeets today, naked eye, on a beautiful summer day. Four of the five are introduced but I still enjoy seeing them.


Walking along a creek today... a Dipper, a pair of Goldeneyes, a Belted Kingfisher, a Flicker, Robins, Finches, and Chickadees of course... and on the way back through a meadow a juvenile Bald Eagle, Red-tailed Hawks, Ravens, a Kestrel, Sharp-shinned Hawk, and Turkey Vulture. In less than an hour, a lovely break. (SLC 15x56, because we went first to a lake that had nearly frozen over and saw only a Great Blue Heron, and 10x32 BN.)

We had some great clear winter sky with stars last night. I watched just for fun not being a real star gazer. The sky was not like some cupola but you could see "forever", many stars behind other stars. Incredible. Used some good 7x50.
