I found a cool device that lets you see what birds are at your outdoor birdfeeder and notifies you when a bird is there on your phone. You can view the bird on your phone in real time and take pictures. It could be use full if you like birdwatching but cant/don't get to do it as often as you'd like.

I don't think I can post the link here but if you google Bird Buddy, it should come up. It is a new product and expects to ship this October.

Thanks, GXTrex, it does look like a cool device. I got a good laugh on their website: they have an animation of a bird landing on the feeder, and the app says "Identifying", then says "It's a Robin". It looks like an Eastern Bluebird, or anything but a Robin. :D

One would probably quickly learn the local birds visiting the feeder, so it shouldn't be an issue. And how fun to see closeups?

GXTrex, thanks for the post and info.

I have two large caged bird feeders off my back deck...(squirrel proof).
And two large Humming Bird feeders spaced away.

I am a bird person too.

I love watching the birds at my feeders. We just took the feeders down because the bears are awake. I can no longer have hummingbird feeders because of the hummingbears.

Oh Nona....I see you have greedy little bears near you too here in NH. I haven’t put mine away yet but the time is near. Little buggers hit every feeder in the neighborhood last year. I bought a window feeder in hopes that I can keep the birds coming. I love watching the birds!
Love the pics Al. You must have some good food as mine don’t land on my finger🙁

Jlynn, when i lived in Florida on the beach I was kinda called the Bird Guy.
I helped coastal birds (Pelicans Osprey) that got tangled up in fish lines
six pack plastic and other trash until we could get them to the sanctuary.
I was able to calm them down when others couldn't and let me get them
untangled. Many did not have to go to the sanctuary.

There was a retired lady who also could do the same if I wasn't
available. This was all before people became more conscience about
fishing lines, plastic and beach trash. Sadly, it still happens today
more than it should.

I saved a Screech Owl over three days that got hit by a car. I quickly
built a wire cage. I fed it raw feed and water with a perch. People were
amazed it would sit on my arm without arm protection.

Finally Florida Wild Life came to pick it up. When I took it to the back of
their truck and put it their keeper cage it did not want to go in. When the
gate closed it just stared at me. I wish I could have kept it. But... it belonged
back in it's natural settings.
