Request: scope

Hi, all
I'd like to respectfully request that folks indicate in their posts whether it's necessary to use a scope to get a view of a bird sufficient for ID. Thanks!

In general? Good idea. 
If referring to Geese, they were maybe only 40 yards away.

From the motel lot, a scope is a good idea. If you drive a little further up the coast, then park on the highway 1 shoulder and walk to the bluff's edge, then a scope is not necessary, but it's possible the geese will be below the top of the rock, in which case, they are not visible from there. So I would take a scope, check them out from the motel lot, then if they're on the top, drive up a little further and walk. My photos here, from the further north location to give you an idea:
