Such Excitement!



Our back yard feeders are busy all day long. The long cylindrical feeder has Nyjer seed in it for the goldfinches. One feeder nearly full lasts only 3-4 days! Most goldfinches seen on the cylinder at one time? --12. Average, most days, any time: --7. You can just see the stream of water from the fountain at the lower right, and you can hear it too, if you turn up the sound.

Sorry the picture is sinking lower and lower. I can't keep my arms up high enough without concentrating harder. Then I have to remember that you have to press the button to stop it filming and not just slide the camera away while it's still filming. Sorry. I'm just an amateur at these things.

Great shots though, well worth it!

Looks and sounds like our backyard. I'll tell Abe he needs to take a few videos and perhaps he can post one.

Chris, an inexpensive tripod will do the trick. Sounds great.

Nice to see such activity around the house! It seems that you must be very popular.

PS Support Jose's comment on tripods. In a addition, a with a simple program (probably included with the camera), you can cut off the ending.
