If you have access to a spotting scope, you can use it as a super-zoom lens with your digital camera. Birders have been using this with great success -- many resources, examples and tips can be found via google: http://www.google.com/search?q=digiscoping+bird or at http://digiscopingukbirds.homestead.com/ The technique is mainly just a matter of holding the camera up to the eyepiece of the scope. The instant feedback you get with a digital camera makes it easy to make immediate adjustments if they are needed.
