Using motion detection webcam software, you’ll be able to document every bird that shows up at the feeder and get a picture of it whenever it moves. Check the instruction blogpost for the pdf instructions.

Of course webcams have been around forever, but with these instructions, they’re easy! You can also use this motion detection feature for security purposes!

Here’s an mp4 that plays on pretty much everything. Here’s an insanely large mov file for hd lovers. Here’s a 3gp and 3g2 for people who like to watch on their phone!
