Join me and the Birdsy Community
For the last 18 months, I have been privileged to have been working on a very exciting project, with a dedicated and enthusiastic team. They had a vision to create a unique camera-based product that would not only monitor a feeding station, but ID the species visiting too! It's pretty incredible!
The project was launched on Kickstarter, and almost doubled its target! Very soon, the cam will be available to purchase.
So, what's it all about?
Watch my video
I have been using a number of cameras in my own patch, plus I have set them up at Aigas Field Centre, Ballintean Mountain Lodge, Hillockhead on The Black Isle and even in Ecuador! I can log into the cameras via my phone, tablet or PC and not only watch the cam live, but also see all the recordings. I lift the clips and share them. If you follow me on social media, you will have seen many of them.
This is one of my favourite set-ups. It is a tyre waterhole in my garden. This camera live streams on my website. This recording shows the view I get on my PC, when I log into the camera. It gives you a flavour of what this clever system is capable of...
Here are a selection of Birdsy clips, to show what the system is capable of. It will film both day and night. It is able to ID most common British birds and the AI is now being 'taught' how to recognise common mammals!
I created these montages to appear on the BirdFair website , where these cameras will be live streaming.
