Overview

REDISCOVER YOUR BACKYARD
The whole family will love discovering backyard nature with the help of the Audubon Bird Camera. This innovative Audubon bird camera takes crystal-clear photos and videos of your backyard birds while you're away. You'll be amazed by what's going on in your own backyard! Weatherproof, motion-activated, and easy-to-use, this digital BirdCam captures photos and videos with sound. It records to an SD card or internal memory (32MB) and makes it easy to e-mail or print your images. No tools, wiring, or software required! Plus, you can experiment with many mounting options - point it at a bird house or bird bath, or simply set it on the ground.

BENEFITS
  • Takes digital photos or videos with sound
  • Easy to use right out of the box
  • Rugged, weatherproof construction so you can leave unattended
  • Stunning Bird Photos and Videos
  • The Audubon BirdCam uses innovative "Smart Sensor" technology that ignores feeder movement and minimizes "empty" shots, so you won't have to worry about sorting through blank images. You'll get frame after frame of amazing bird photography that shows you wildlife in an up-close, unobtrusive way.

EASY SETUP AND VERSATILE MOUNTING
Setting the Audubon bird camera up is extremely easy. Adjustable focus keeps your bird photographs sharp at any distance 18-inches or farther and a laser aiming device helps insure aim is accurate. Included with the Audubon BirdCam is a pair of stretch cords that can be used to attach the Audubon BirdCam to any stationary object, such as a post or tree. A standard tripod mount on the bottom attaches to any standard tripod or the optional BirdCam Mounting Arm. The Audubon BirdCam is rugged and built to be used outdoors. It is intended to sit and wait where the human eye can't (or won't).

GREAT TEACHING TOOL FOR KIDS
The Audubon BirdCam is a great way to teach kids about nature. They'll love learning about the wildlife in their own backyards. The whole family can enjoy identifying birds together and creating a "Life List" of species! And since the Audubon bird camera makes it easy to download and share, they'll love e-mailing photos to their friends. Your growing collection of bird photos and videos will be great for creative projects like personal field guides, calendars, web sites and gifts.
