New skycam and birdcam
« on: December 26, 2008, 01:12:50 PM »
Well All,
  Just got my 2 Logitech Pro 9000 cams outside. One is now shoing a sky view and the other is showing a bird feeder. MUch, MUCH clearer now that they are outside.... Now for enclosures.....

Very nice.  :-) I want to create a feeder cam myself. How far is the camera from the feeder?

We built a large shed type feeder and then mounted a camera right outside the right end, looking through a hole in the wall.

Before spring, I'm going to do the same thing with one of our bluebird houses, complete with lighting.

Very nice Jim.  Maybe look into dome enclosures.  There are good deals around.

MalAlWx,
 Dome? Where can you find those?

Floodcaster, the camera is about 1 1/2 - 2 ft away from the feeder...... Already getting some nice shots...  \:D/

I purch my entire setup from here.  Use dome for PTZ and box for others.  Great cust/tech support, even before you buy.

Hiya Jim,

I also have cameras set up for our birds.  In the spring, I activate my birdhouse cameras.  It's really interesting seeing the eggs hatch and the chicks grow up to fledge.  My bird site is:
