You guys are just way toooo funny. You know I would never take the opportunity to bird while doing an official training excercise. The binocs were used for the leap frogging excercise and to try to spot the waypoint flags early. The class was great and we all learned alot and got paid for being outside half the day. Take care all.

Even though I cant see us using this in the city, that was some of the best training I've had in a long time. It was very interesting and fun. Thanks to Mike Guzo for teaching it.
