Wingscapes’ Audubon BirdCam takes over for bird-watchers when they head indoors. It’s a motion-activated digital camera, protected inside a weatherproof housing. If you mount it in a tree or near a bird feeder, a motion sensor will automatically take a still picture or a short video (with sound) whenever it detects a bird in its viewing area.
If you enjoy watching bird behavior over time, you can create high-definition, time-lapse video with Wingscapes’ TimelapseCam. It takes photos at set intervals and then automatically stitches them together to create time-lapse videos. (It also works for documenting parties, plant growth, weather patterns or construction projects.) Come mealtime, Autofeeder makes it easy to regulate how much food is dispensed and at what times. Birds will get used to the routine, which makes it easier for you to watch them.
Bart Stephens, the founder of Wingscapes, came up with the idea for the BirdCam and TimelapseCam after experimenting with his digital camera’s time-lapse setting to capture the scene at his family’s backyard bird feeder. By combining motion-activated capabilities, time-lapse photography, and rugged, weatherproof housings, he engineered Wingscapes’ family-friendly bird-watching camera. You can experience backyard nature in a whole new way -- and in vivid detail.
