For the Bird Lovers

During the winter months we park, like many full-timers. We get out of the van for a few months to stretch out a little and regroup, take care of business we couldn’t do on the road, and download and edit imagery our stills and video, We exchange the 19 feet forĀ 40 feet of 5th wheel and add a lot of technology.

So, in 2012, during early Spring, we discovered a pair of finches building a nest in the hitch of the 5th wheel. What a great time and place to capture nesting finches. So, we dug out the old spy camera, technology at least a decade old, wired it up from the hitch, through a window, and to our DVD recorder.
We caught several hours of the finches from soon after hatching until they left the nest.

We’re compiling the footage for a much longer version, but here is a minute of early feeding. It’s fun to watch their necks grow, their bodies grow too big for the nest, and finally leave.

We’ll post a few more shorts over time.

  1. I don’t even know the way I stopped up here, however I thought this submit was once great.
    I do not recognize who you are but definitely you are
    going to a well-known blogger in the event you are not already.


  2. fantastic post, very informative. I wonder why the other specialists of this sector do not notice this. You should continue your writing. I am confident, you have a huge readers’ base already!

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

  4. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something
    to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d
    post to let you know. The layout look great though!

    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks
