On Sunday May 14, 2017 local Brevard County, Florida birder Mitchell Harris found an ABA Code 5 Bahama Woodstar at Maritime Hammock on Hwy A1A north of Sebastian Inlet. After a post on eBird the birders and photographers started to flock from far and wide.
Leica’s new digiscoping kit with the Leica Q camera is a joy to use. The auto focus synchs fast allowing one to easily capture fast moving subjects and built in viewfinder works well in bright sunlight.

So after weeks of anxious anticipation, I FINALLY received the shipment I’d been eagerly awaiting. The shipment arrived late Friday evening as I was literally heading out the door for a scheduled appointment. On Saturday, heavy rains kept me from being able to test these new beauties and even though under a heavy overcast with threat of rain, I managed to head afield on Sunday at long last with the Leica APO Televid 82 mm spotting scope and two different Leica digiscoping rigs to test and compare. Over my left shoulder I slung the Leica Q (typ 116) camera with the new matched digiscoping adapter and from the right shoulder hung the Leica T camera body equipped with a prototype of our brand new 35 mm objective lens adapter.
