Bluebird box: no luck yet

March 27 through April 2, 2011 — 54 pictures in 54 seconds, with the Wildview camera pointed at the bluebird box. Although I saw a chickadee exit the box last weekend, I definitely saw a bluebird peering into the box yesterday, with a partner on a twig nearby. So why didn’t the camera see them?

Evidently the camera needs to be on a pole almost adjacent to the nesting box. A 150% enlargement from one of the chickadee shots:
