Sedona, AZ - Day 2 - 01 Mar 2012
I spotted a Red-shafted Flicker atop a large cottonwood, but it was severely backlit by the morning sun. As I set up the scope to watch it a Cooper's Hawk flew in and replaced it on the limb. I grabbed the scope and ran around to the edge of the property, but couldn't get a clear enough view through the trees. The hawk squawked for several seconds, then took off across the creek.
I then spent the morning testing the new Nikon V1 as a digiscoping camera, specifically to compare magnifications with my trusty old Nikon Coolpix P6000. I've posted a review of this work on my digiscoping blog.
