Quiz on Belizean Birds and Greater Coverts

Find the Greater Secondary Coverts

These are some of my digiscoped photos from a recent trip to Belize, all taken at the fantastic Black Rock Lodge.

On each photo body parts are labeled with letters, and your challenge is to identify the greater secondary coverts on each bird.

Good luck!

  1. Fun quiz with interesting birds – thank you. Photos quite good for digiscoping. Can you tell us which scope and camera combination you used?

    1. Hi Hop,

      I use an old Canon Powershot A590, and a Swarovski 80mm HD scope with a 30X wide angle eyepiece. I discovered that a tapered extension tube sold by Canon (LA-DC52G) fits snugly on the rubber eyecup of the scope and holds the camera in the right position. But the real key to crisp shots in digiscoping is minimizing movement, because the magnification is so high even the tiniest vibration can blur the image. I set the custom timer of the camera to take five shots with each press of the shutter, so I can set up the scope and camera, press the shutter, and take my hands away. After the first one or two shots the tripod is very stable and I get some crisp pictures.

  2. Thanks for the info David, I will try that technique. I rarely get sharp photos but have not tried the multiple shot approach. I use a very light tripod and head so that might contribute to the instability.
