Viewing Sea Birds
See the little speck in the middle of this image....that is the Red-necked Grebe. It was spotted even farther away by two birders with scopes. The group moved as close to the bird as possible and this was it.
Without a good scope it would have been impossible to see this bird well. Thank goodness for the sharing nature of birders as my friend and I were able to see this bird quite well.
More on a scope: I have difficulty seeing through some binoculars and scopes. I don't know what it is but I have tried to use a preferred birder pair of binoculars but I absolutely cannot see anything. That is often the case with a scope. I guess like everything practice is required and I may need to work at that as most sea birds are quite far from shore.
