After two years of beaming images of the spectacular action at David Smith and Shanna Rendon’s feeders in Grand Junction, Colorado, the FeederWatch Cam is set to migrate north on February 18, 2011. Tune-in to the live video stream for one last chance at a glimpse of western specialties that can be seen in this unique pinyon/juniper ecosystem. Birds like the Gambel’s Quail, Western Scrub-Jay, Bushtit, and Pinyon Jay have made regular appearances on the cam. In addition to the amazing birds, many of us will also miss the cast of mammalian characters that frequently attempted to steal the spotlight from the birds. FeederWatch greatly appreciates the excitement that Dave and Shanna shared with the world by opening their backyard to us through FeederWatch Cam.
The FeederWatch Cam will be offline during a short transition period as the camera is installed at its new home in Manitouwadge, Ontario, deep in the northern forest. FeederWatcher Tammie Hache is looking forward to sharing the diversity of birds that she enjoys in her woodland retreat. Boreal specialties like Pine Grosbeak, Hoary Redpoll, and Evening Grosbeak are likely to be regular characters appearing on the new video stream. We’ll post to the blog and notify fans when the new cam is up and running in Ontario.
