Hello to all & hope everyone is doing well.

Its that time of the year to setup the WiFi cam and get the feeders out where they belong. The RTH map showed a sighting about 2 miles south of me. Last yr my first one was May 5th,soooo lets see what happens. Since the weather has been nice, decided to clean up the garden & was hoping some B&B's would come back. Well, doesn't look like it. Going to be running off to the greenhouse for some new ones in a few weeks. Here is a pic from the cam waiting on a visitor.

Good Luck to all on a new year.

Your yard looks pretty sparse right now - so your feeder will really catch their eye, if the hummers pass by. Keep us posted (and post pics)!

Brett...

Here is a link with the topic I started on my wifi cam history. I ended up going with D-Link Outdoor HD Wireless Network Cloud Camera (DCS-2330L). When I bought it on Ebay it was 105$, price has gone up. The topic has a few vid links from the camera. Hope that helps
