Consider the (?)physics of it. If you're looking at a bird through
binoculars/scope, you are technically  still seeing light rays from the
actual bird as all the lenses do is bend the light. If you're watching a

webcam, you're not seeing light from the actual bird.

How's that for a technical argument ;)
