Someone put her short lens on! Great picks as always T.

Can’t say I blame the officer for being vigilant. There may have been trouble in the area and they were looking for anyone out of place.

I have heard some stories about run ins with homeowners and law enforcement from some of my birding friends. I try not to look in peoples yards too much because of it. All it would take is one property owner who thinks your up to no good and you just may wish you had the cops there. Usually once they see the guide books and your notes they calm down.

I don’t always look like the most reputable man in the neighborhood.

Stay safe, and keep your registration updated!
