Birdwatching with the CL Pocket?

Diego Calderón-Franco’s experiences

Reading time: 2 min.

Recently I spent a few days birding in Chicago. I decided to take my new CL Pockets with me and I have to say that I no longer consider them as my backups! I enjoyed birding with the CL Pocket in the urban parks very much. I was commuting by bicycle and bus or just walking around without even feeling that I was carrying binoculars. I have to say that the optical quality of these tiny optics is unbelievable:

full details and loads of light in this amazingly comfy gear that disappears in the palm of my hands.

WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST SURPRISE FOR ME?

Experiencing, that the depth of view allowed me to switch from the birds that were close by to the ones farther away without even having to move the focusing wheel...

WOW!

Check the Norhern Flickers incredible call, it sounds very unique!

In the future, I will not only bring the CL Pocket as my backups on every tour, but I will also use them as my main binoculars on ever more occasions.
