Drew had the chance to watch an incredible number of Montezuma and Chestnut-headed Oropendula’s, and Great-tailed Grackles come in to roost in a stand of bamboo last night. “The sound was pretty raucous. Equally impressive was being able to digiscope some clear video despite it being 15 minutes after the sun disappeared over the mountains thanks to the Leica scope.”

He digiscoped the roosting birds with a Leica APO Televid 65mm + iPhone 5s & Phone Skope adapter.
