Getting Arrested For Counting Parakeets
Researchers need to be stealthy in the wild, especially when they’re tracking animals. That’s the point of camouflage. When this person used binoculars to count invasive parakeets roosting near NATO headquarters, their science experiment took a turn for the worse. NATO likely assumed they were a spy and the security team arrested them. Using binoculars near NATO headquarters is not the smartest move. At least they have a valid explanation as to why they were hovering around NATO with binoculars (Cheezburger).
