Spotting Scopes and Birders

I'm not going to say a lot here--just sharing a few pictures that a buddy of mine took during the Great Salt Lake Audubon Gullstravaganza a couple weeks ago. When I saw the pictures I was amazed at the number of spotting scopes present. Despite having been there and seeing them, the pictures tell a better story:




It reminds me of the pictures in magazines of people chasing a mega-rarity, lined up shoulder to shoulder to see the bird. Olny in these pictures we were scanning a lake looking for anything worth taking a look at!
