The current “squirrel” box was originally set up for Screech Owls in January 2022. A pair of screech owls moved in January 2022. They had four eggs, but none of them hatched. Eventually the two owls abandoned the nest. For about three months there were just the occasional screech owl visitor at night and squirrel visitor during the day. One day I was checking the cameras in early September 2022 and I saw two young sleeping squirrel pups in the box! I looked through the saved video and found the mom had moved the two pups in on September 6, 2022.

I started streaming live September 18th 2022.

In early January I moved the “squirrel” box to its current North location and put up a second box in the South tree for owls.

If you have any suggestions or comments please add them to one of the videos I linked above. I read all comments and will answer any questions.

For the outside camera I am using a Reolink RLC-811A, About $120. Inside the box is a no brand/no name PoE (Power over Ethernet) IP Camera. I paid around $60 including shipping from China. I tried to use open-source free software but in the end i used the free Chinese software they provided. There was no brand name for the camera. But you see 50 different (or more) places selling these and similar ones. They are focused for 3 feet to infinity. You have to open them up to adjust the lens for about 8″ to 16 inches like how mine is focused in the box. The resolution i run mine at is 2560×1440 at 25 frames per second. I do plan on in the future making a video showing the compete set up.

Not sure if this link will work to a picture of the inside camera: g

The easiest way to get started is to buy a WIRED PoE security camera system like Reolink sells. (I have no affiliation with Reolink.) For around $400 you can get a pretty good system.
