Even the newer cell phones today aren’t great at getting close-ups of wildlife in the distance.
So I bought a “monocular” to attach to my Galaxy A70 and catch some animal action.
It greatly improves my ability to get close-ups. And makes me think I could get into bird photography.
Yes, I need work on focusing before the birdies fly off (for starters I could put on my glasses!).
Here’s some local New England birds and wildlife, including eastern bluebirds, yellow finches, and downy, flicker and red-bellied woodpeckers.
Plus a couple of rare and unusual species you definitely haven’t seen before!
You’ll notice this bird and wildlife monocular does take time to adjust – getting shots before the critters scatter takes practice.

Until this a couple of months ago, I hadn’t seen a bluebird in the yard for 10 years.
It’s been a treat to see 3 males and 1 female in the last 3 days.
