Together with my convenient compact Bushnell Binoculars in my car or pocket I catch many short and fantastic real life threatening scenes. It doesn’t matter where I am. What things is celebrating and being awake. Since I see a shadow overhead, I could pull over to both sides of the road and reach for my binoculars from the glove compartment.
Recently I been in town rather than expecting to find some other birds aside from the typical pigeons, sparrows and a couple of starlings. In my surprise I came upon a scene which might have come right out of Wild Kingdom. You can get details from compact Binoculars from here at https://thetopfinds.com/camera-and-photo/binocular/best-compact-binoculars/.
Right in the library parking lot I saw prey and predator in action. I reached for my birding binoculars immediately once I stopped and set the car in park. Yes, it had been the center of the lane, but nobody was supporting me. The birds were immediately in front of had me. I estimated that they had been about 2 car lengths away. Together with my birdwatching binoculars I could clearly revolve around identifying marks and genuinely enjoyed seeing their competitive behaviour. It was a life and death struggle along with the pigeon (Columba livia) had no opportunity after the Coopers Hawk had it firmly recognized with its powerful feet.
Being outside in the open with no cover whatsoever the Coopers Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) kept turning around to watch for the own security, after every plucked pigeon feather. I could see from the glistening eyes of this pigeon that it was killed almost immediately. Thank goodness. Truly, I don’t want to see animals being eaten alive. The pigeon likely had its neck broken up with the initial strong attack after hitting the floor from the hawk’s grip.
Every time the Coopers hawk switched I got another perspective of its attributes. It was magnificent. My streamlined Bushnell binoculars came through again with close up views of this invoice and eyes of the gorgeous young yet lethal hawk. Deadly that’s, if you’re a pigeon.
