Noted: How to Make an Amazing Birdfeeder Monitor with Arduino #CitizenScience #Arduino #Birding #DIY
Cool project on so many levels. Lots of learning to be had here and a fun project too. — Douglas
For those of you who enjoy birdwatching, you may have heard of Project FeederWatch, a citizen science program by The Cornell Lab that encourages people to monitor bird activity at feeders. Well, makers Greg V. and Phil V. decided to not only monitor their feeder, but to improve the feeder itself with a bit of Arduino hacking. Their project tutorial It’s for the Birds was recently posted on Hackster.io. Their modified soda bottle feeder collects weather data, measures changes in seed levels, recognizes perch sides and gets amazing photos of birds! Check out their dash which was created using PubNub and Cloudinary.
