Just imagine the excitement when your students get the opportunity to take a peek inside a bird's nest! This bird box equipped with camera will allow them to do just that and see the full cycle from building the nest, taking care of the eggs and raising their chicks. Amazing!
Here is some technical information from the manufacturer:
The colour and infrared camera is a robust kit for watching and listening to wild birds on the nest during the day and at night. The nest box is made of solid FSC naturally durable timber with a pitched roof and camera clip secured in the roof. It has a 32 mm copper hole protector and perspex panel on the side to improve camera colour resolution.
The CMOS colour/ infrared camera operates in high quality colour during daylight and then switches to black and white in low light levels and darkness. The nest box has a side window to increase light into the box and boost camera performance. The camera is connected back to your TV set or monitor via a 30m screened cable and into the supplied scart adapter. Power is supplied to the camera via a low voltage power adapter also included in the kit.
Note: The camera kit is not designed to connect to a computer/ laptop. In order to do this you would need to purchase a USB Video Adapter. Your school may already have one of these. Regardless, we find that most schools connect the system to a TV in a communal area rather than a classroom.
