    bird cams capture a window to the secret world

    Nesting Eastern Bluebirds video spotted on YouTube provides fantastic video and wonderful still shots that capture any birder’s heart. This camera lets us view male and female blues at a Gilbertson Nest Box.

    Bird Cams capture a secret window into the world of nature that only few are lucky enough to experience. Having been on the market for several years now, bird cams, or bird watching cameras, have really come down in price making them more affordable than ever. The technology and ease of use has also improved, making bird cams more user-friendly and accessible for everyone.

    Bird Cams Site Worth Checking Out

    blue jay at cameraEnjoy watching birds?

    Bird food, houses and birdbaths, we set them up in hopes of attracting feathered friends to our yards. We start watching and begin to notice much more about birds. Hoping to catch a glimpse of a new species every now and then, we simply “bird watch” and are taken away to another realm.

    With the introduction of bird cams, we can catch so much more about bird’s nesting behavior and raising their young. It’s almost like a secret window into another world. The quality is superb, and allthough the price of bird cams has come down substantially, it’s still a pretty hefty investment for some.

    Thanks to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, there’s a terrific site for viewing multitudes of bird cams in one place. The Nest Cams Project site offers viewers a drop-down menu of specific birds and their nesting process. They do ask for a donation to keep this site up and running, but for most choices on the menu you can scroll down to see some great video highlights. Definitely worth checking out!

    From the Cornell Site: “Your gift keeps NestCams rolling on the fascinating behavior of breeding birds. Millions of web visitors have witnessed live video of birds courting, mating, laying eggs, and raising young. Thank you for supporting this project!”

    Bird Cams are Nature’s Spies

    blue grosbeak at feeder with bird camThe birds around here are fed daily; the meal worms, the woodpecker mix, the bark butter, the cardinal seed, hummingbird nectar, sunflower hearts, finch mix and thistle seed, drippers and misters, and oh yeah, the squirrels too. This is part of my morning ritual, checking feeders and cleaning bird baths if necessary. Some folks think I’m crazy, but it’s so worth seeing an adult bluebird feeding fledlings mealworms from the bluebird feeder. Mornings seem to be so rushed too, I barely catch a glance here and there of the fabulous activity right outside the kitchen window.

    So, I’ve devised a new plan, that when I get home and grab some coffee, it’s straight outside to the back deck. Time to sit down and watch the birds who I so routinely feed every single day. Just tonight, it was amazing to see all the species and the cutest babies just learning to use the feeders. Bluebirds, Cardinals, Goldfinches, Titmice, Nuthatches, butterflies, both Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers, Purple Finches, and Hummingbirds buzzing my head as I was too close to their feeder. It was like a show. chipmunk with peanuts

    My next plan is a bird cam to catch all this action while I’m gone most of the day. Bird Cams are like nature’s spies, and I want one! Recording much more than the birds, they should call it a Wildlife Cam. They don’t have to be installed in a birdhouse, just set near some busy feeders and they’ll record tons of activity for later viewing. A great show like this shouldn’t be missed!
