From the Birdcam: Visitors to the Birdbath

Posted Leave a comment

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!

Eastern Bluebird – Aha! So they do come into the yard sometimes!

Prairie Warbler surprised me when he showed up with a male Painted Bunting

Bow Tie! My favorite little Yellow-throated Warbler is more easily heard than seen

The uninvited visitor: a Cooper’s hawk

Northern Cardinal loves the water drip while he poses with another beautiful male, the Painted Bunting!

Three male Painted Buntings at a time – so pretty!

Papa Cardinal feeding Mama Cardinal at night – nesting season is on the way!

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! :)
