I thought I would offer up a mini-review of my new Wingscapes Birdcam. I’ve only spent a day and a half with it, and it does take some thought process on where to place the Birdcam for the optimum pictures and video.
I’ll also say this. The bigger SD card you can get, the better. The BirdCam does take lots of pictures and/or videos, and if you have a pesky Squirrel or two like I do, you will end up with lots of images of that.
One of the funniest pictures taken was of this Red Bellied Woodpecker. As I was looking at this picture, it took me a moment to see what the Woodpecker was looking at. Look in the left hand side of the picture. Did you notice that Squirrel in the Rose looking very guilty?
The Birdcam also captured a couple of birds that I have never taken pictures of before.
One was of a Brown Headed Cowbird. If seen this bird in the backyard before, but not so frequently I’ve ever been able to take a picture.
A second bird that I’ve never take a picture of before was of a Common Grackle. In this image, the Mourning Dove looks a little intimated by the Grackle.
I was hoping I would be able to take some decent video with the Birdcam and overall I’m reasonably satisfied. My one disappointment with the video capabilities of this Birdcam is that the maximum amount of each video is only 10 seconds. I wish I could choose on how long it would record each video.
The most entertaining video that was recorded was of a little spat between the Common Grackle and the Red Bellied Woodpecker. The Woodpecker didn’t seem to pleased about the arrival of the Grackle.
