Everyone agreed it was wonderful to see Friends and enjoy nature together again (while observing safe social distancing)!
Before and after birding everyone had lots of time to meet the Redstart Birding and SWAROVSKI OPTIK Birding team, learn about and TRY! the latest and newest technology optics equipment offered.
