Revisiting the Rookery, A Closer Look

Our previous post talked about a Great Egret, Great Blue Heron, and Double Crested Cormorant rookery on an island in the middle of a quarry in Columbus.

.

We finally managed to get the digiscope working reasonably well and were able to get the following shots. While certainly not National Geographic quality, hopefully they give the  reader a better idea about what’s on the island.

Folks may be interested in the digiscope rig used so below are a few pics. The camera is a small, light, 8mp Canon SD850 IS mounted on a universal mount which is the fussy part. The scope is a easy to transport 60mm Vanguard Endeavour XF. 20X zoom was used for the shots.

We don’t usually do two posts back to back on the same subject but we thought further elaboration might be welcome.

P.S: Right at my feet as I was digiscoping and too beautiful to ignore .   .   .

  1. A rookery, how exciting! Is this a new park? I don’t recall it, but then we’ve been gone for a while now.

  2. Thanks.

    • Jerry, for getting a shot that otherwise wouldn’t be possible it’s not bad. A dedicated camera adapter on a higher end scope would undoubtedly yield better results. More importantly the scope does a pretty good job when just used as a scope and is small/light enough I don’t mind lugging it around.
