|This photo was taken with a Sam's Club|
disposable 35mm camera with a one time
only telephoto lens by Herbie Bell
Early this morning Herbie Bell, 63, of Bridgeport was looking out his kitchen window hoping to see the first robin of the Spring. As he was about to give up, a flutter of wings caught his eye and a bird with the familiar orange breast of a robin landed not 30 feet from his window.
Upon closer look through a telescope, he saw the spots of the Spotted Robin and knew he had not only spotted a robin, but he had spotted a Spotted Robin! Bell used a one time only Sam's Club 35mm camera, and the disposable telephoto lens that came with it, to capture the photo shown in this story. He then notified local bird watchers, who in turn contacted Professor Anuff.
