I just wanted to share a couple of photos of a male white-winged crossbill that I took, the last time that I was in Jasper. The first photo shows the bird through just my camera zoomed in as far as my camera would allow. The last two photos were taken through my binoculars. Yes, you read that right: through my binoculars. I put the camera lens right in to my binoculars zoomed in a bit more, brought it home, Photoshoped a bit and Voila! Okay, they aren't very good pictures, but they are pictures nevertheless, pictures that are useable enought for IDing birds. Cool!

Yes Daniel, if I hadn't been with you to see you do it, I wouldn't have believed it would work. It was very neat to see that it actually does, and like you say it could be a useful tool to identify birds once you get back home (if you don't have your birding books with you, or if the bird doesn't stay still long enough to ID it!)

cool, I didn't know you could do that!, I guess I'll have to try it to...
I'll try to make it on Nov 2nd, and
will we be discussing the chosen by Chaim Potok?,

Wow! I did not know you could do that! My bro has a pair of binoculars that are a digital camera and I must admit I envy him...*sigh*

But these shots are great! I am impressed.
