distant birds and the limits of vision

After work, I walked in the park. I saw lots of bluebirds and sparrows. As I was leaving, up on a power line, I saw an American kestrel. In my binoculars, I could make out its coloration and features. Through my zoom lens (more powerful but less sharp), everything was a bit blurry.
Lots of life works this way--clear to experience, but impossible to capture and recount for others.
