Is there anything more bonding to a father/son relationship than the building of a birdhouse? Maybe before the digital age, but now the birdhouse has been made technologically efficient.
As you can see, this nest box has tiny camera inside of it, so you can actually see what is going on inside of it. It is an IR camera, so you can view what is going on during the night and the day.
This camera also has a transmitter with a range of 328 feet to the included base station. This base station can be connected to any display with RCA input, and you can watch a nest like it was a Discovery Channel program.
Of course, there is no guarantee that you will have some good footage of the birdies with this peeping tom camera. I wonder if the birds have any idea that they and their babies are on a reality TV show. You might want to figure out a way to record it, as you could easily miss the episode where the eggs hatch.
You will have to connect the camera to a power supply, unless you want to use the battery pack. By the way, the battery pack is only good for about two hours. The Nest Box with IR Camera is available at the Pro-Idee site for about $211.
