Once mounted, the BirdCam 2.0 will take crystal-clear 8-megapixel images of your backyard wildlife, so you can see more than ever before.

Advanced Features

The BirdCam 2.0 is packed with advanced features designed to expand your bird photography options. In addition to the motion-sensitive mode (referred to as Auto mode), the BirdCam 2.0 can take digital photos or videos at a specific time interval (Time Lapse mode) or be used as a regular digital camera (Manual mode). The camera also comes with a built-in flash for nighttime photography, so you can capture photos of nocturnal birds like owls and nighthawks.

Easy to Set Up

It’s easy to get started on the BirdCam 2.0. The setup menu includes “easy” photo and video programs that handle most backyard applications. If you want more control, the setup menu lets you adjust the photo or video settings, photo resolution, delay, number of images per event, time/date/location imprint, and sensitivity of the infrared sensor. You can also erase images and perform a diagnostic test.

Share Photos and Videos

Ever used a digital camera? Sharing photos from the BirdCam 2.0 is just as simple. Just download your bird photography or videos to your computer using the included USB cable or an optional memory card. You can also view your bird photography on a TV with the included TV out cable. Once on a computer, you can save and share your photos and videos by printing, emailing, or posting them to the web. Plus, the camera’s built-in Smart Sensor technology ignores feeder movement and minimizes “empty” shots, so you don’t have to sort through blank images.

Rugged and Ready to Use

The BirdCam 2.0 is rugged, weatherproof, and ready to use right out of the box, with no tools, wiring, or software required.

Very Frustrating First, I must say that as long as there is bright sunlight, this camera works as advertised. However, the camera flash works poorly or not at all.The first unit’s display would blank out after a period of time and rarely take a flash picture … even when waving my hands in front of the camera. I called the manufacturer and they promptly sent a replacement.Consequently, I was setting up the replacement unit for its first night out to see if it operated properly. I…

Watching hummingbirds from a windowless office I’ve been using this camera for a few weeks. In that time, I’ve been able to go from watching hummingbirds visit my feeder on weekends only, to getting some really nice pictures during my work day, most days. The camera takes great pictures, though of course for small, fast moving birds it’s important to have it as close as possible. In my case, it’s about eighteen inches from the feeder, and the feeder has a perch, which helps birds stay longer, and stay still.As other reviewers…
