My mom gave me a birdcam for my birthday last year. It detects motion and takes a picture when it senses that a bird is present. My mom’s goal was to help me monitor the various species of birds in the backyard. After leaving it set up near the birdbath for a few months, I did a happy dance when I saw all the neat things that the birdcam captured. Let’s take a look!
Here’s the total listing of species captured with the birdcam: American Goldfinch, Blue Jay, Brown Thrasher, Brown-headed Cowbird, Common Ground Dove, Cooper’s Hawk, Eastern Bluebird, Eastern Phoebe, Gray Catbird, House Finch, Mourning Dove, Northern Cardinal, Northern Mockingbird, Orange-Crowned Warbler, Painted Bunting, Palm Warbler, Prairie Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Yellow-throated Warbler
The still images are neat, but I think this birdcam video is even better!
Thanks to my mom’s thoughtful gift, I’ll be spying on my birds more in 2021! :)
