Digiscoping: movies of the Eagles: eating and preening

The other day, I drove past one of the Eagles on the pole just past Moser’s house. I had been trying to film the nest, so I had both my camera with the 400m lens and the scope with the digiscoping adapter. (If you’re not either a birder or a photographer, digiscoping is the process whereby you connect a camera to a quality scope and use it for your lens.) I am still learning how to make it work, especially because I think two tripods works best. I caught this video of one of the eagles eating and preening:

    This looks like a slippery slope to me.

    Bill, it’s your fault I have the scope (thanks!) and I can’t wait to see you back here birding!
