    Why are the birds so interested in my security cameras all of a sudden? LOL!

    The attached images just cracked me up when I was reviewing the content from my security cameras. The cameras are not new so this isn't something that just popped up for the critters to be inquisitive about but they appear to be very curious about them all of a sudden.

    Doesn't this one look like the bird is inspecting my camera? I cracked up when I saw this.

    I thought that was a good laugh and then continued my review when this one shows up. This one isn't inspecting my camera but is a great shot of the bird in flight.

    I guess the bird was done with the driveway camera and decided to check out the camera over my deck.

    The bird must have been so intrigued by this that they had to bring a friend over to check it out.

    Now back to checking out the driveway camera. Guess there was unfinished business there after all.

    I've capture plenty of wildlife with the cameras and I always love seeing them. This series was truly a unique experience that I just had to share. I hope you enjoyed the entertainment as much as I did.

    It's quite possible that the bird is seeing a reflection of itself in the camera lens thinking it is either a possible mate or threat.

    I like your driveway and back yard! I need a bigger piece of property, hopefully in a different state in a few years.

    Those aren't really "birds", they're NSA Drones, manufactured to look like birds.
    The I.R.S. must love poor folks, they create more and more every day.

    My folks have a huge mirror in their bathroom. They also have a, wait for it, a WINDOW!(why?) There is this cardinal who would see his reflection in the mirror thru the window. At precisely 8:00 every morning, he would bang on the window, trying to get to the reflection. This went on for some years, but the bird hasn't come back this year. Maybe someday...

    Those are great pictures. What kind of camera do you use? That looks like a very good depth of field and sharp lens as well as a fast shutter speed.

    Thanks! I love the acreage but it does translate into a lot of work to have mother nature look the way I want it to (for a short time ).

    I purchased these cameras from Amazon. They are model TV-IP310PI, 3 megapixel, motion triggered, capture video and stills, with night time IR range listed at 30 meters. I easily have 30 meter coverage from IR on mine so that is not an overstatement. They are an easy install too with Power over Ethernet (PoE), if you are looking for some self-install outside cameras.
