I got to make the coolest phone call on Christmas Eve to Bobby Harrison. I got to tell him that Eagle Optics will sponsor his quest to get a photo of an ivory-billed woodpecker this winter! Basically, Eagle Optics will cover his cost for some motion sensitive cameras and the cost of someone to take over teaching his classes at Oakwood College in Huntsville, Alabama. We also gave him a pair of the Vortex DLS 8x42 binoculars (the same pair I have) to aid in his searches in the swamp.
The really exciting part is that Bobby is going to check in with me once a week to let me know what he sees and hears in the swamp and those updates will be available at www.eagleoptics.com. I will announce in my blog when the updates are available. Another reason to get your binoculars through Eagle Optics, you're not just purchasing binoculars or spotting scopes, you are aiding in conservation and research with your purchase.
