Welcome. The pictures have been taken by a method called Digiscoping. This involves using a spotting scope on a tripod and attaching a small digital camera with an adaptor to the scope's eyepiece. I use a Kowa TSN-824M Spotting Scope, an adaptor from Eagle Optics, and a Nikon Coolpix 4500 camera. I download images to Adobe Photoshop Elements, and use the cropping, despeckling, light adjustment, and sharpening tools to enhance photos when appropriate.
I'm an amateur birder, and if I have misidentified any species, please let me know. I enjoy birding and sharing these photos, and I hope you enjoy them.
The "medium" viewing size seems to work best for most computer screens, and this size may be selected below the pictures.
