howdy all.

i have a live cam set up in northfield township, mi.

often the birds are very active.

the resolution is high which may cause problems with bandwidth. please let me know!

sometimes the page is slow in loading.


it's late today and the activity has died down

can someone please identify the dark birds  fond of the suet?

this was done with a 25.00 microsoft lifecam and freeware.

if your feeder is more than 15 ft from a computer, add 7-8 dollars for a usb extender and an ethernet cable ($?) to the location. (up to 125 ft)

if anyone is interested in learning how i did it. please ask.

hope you enjoy and that this is correct place for this post.

Those birds are European Starlings... known to many as "air pollution"

well, their table manners leave much to be desired...

thanks for your reply. 

i look forward to seeing the different  visitors to the feeder as the year progresses.

Guess I was up a little to early for your birds, will try it again later. Even in the dark I was able to see the feeders quite well though.
