Sharing the activities of wild song birds in your yard with others has become a relatively simple task especially if you have a wireless network with Internet access.
A number of companies offer wireless color cameras equipped with embedded web servers. By hooking up one or more cameras to your network and enabling them to be accessed from the Internet, you can easily provide real-time images of wild bird activity in your yard.
We currently have one camera (help-for-bluebirds-1.homeip.net) pointing through the kitchen window at a feeder array. Real-time images of birds feeding at the array are available for viewing anywhere in the world via the Internet. Most of the web servers supplied with the cameras allow viewers to take snap shots of the images and store them. The camera has an effective range of appoximately 150’ from the wireless router. A range expander can be added to extend the range.
