Here's the original post by Reddit user u/ShereKhanage:
OP looked quite suspicious with his binoculars.
Two cops confronted OP about what exactly he was doing.
OP didn't have anything to prove his claims to the cops.
After investigating further, the cops decided to let OP go and explained how suspicious what he was doing looked.
Basically don't it anywhere near a school.
Known as the little falcon, the Australian hobby (Falco longipennis) is one of six Australian members of the Falconidae family.
"An Australian Hobby (Falco longipennis) with what I presume is an escapee pet Budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus) for lunch"
It is comparatively slender, long-winged, and smaller compared to other falcons.
A darker plumage is found in humid areas and a lighter plumage in drier ones, depending on sex, age, and environment.
Here's how the Reddit community reacted to u/ShereKhanage's post:
Hobbies that don't involve looking suspicious and getting questioned by the cops.
It would be a pretty good excuse to get out of that situation.
You can't use this excuse if you don't actually have that knowledge.
It will eventually come in handy in the future.
Looking doesn't mean you are committing a crime.
Sounds like something straight out of a comedy short.
OP gave some people ideas.
Wikipedia saves the day once again!
That's even harder to explain.
How can you even be both?
Op will now think twice before pulling his binoculars out. It's good to see cops keeping a close eye on schoolchildren and protecting them from potential creeps.
This time it was a false alarm, but real threats are still out there. If you enjoyed reading this, make sure to check out similar content on our platform.
