Before there was radar, ornithologists studied bird migration by pointing a telescope at the moon and studying what passed in front of it. "Moonwatching" is a technical term used by ornithologists. I too trained my lens on the moon while awaiting dawn and watched the early departure of some cranes as they headed to nearby farmers fields to feed along Nebraska's Platte River.
