Dickie

Last January my dad bought me a bird box with a camera in it for my birthday - all through the Spring and Summer there was limited interest in it by our feathered friends - once or twice one would venture a look in but no one took up residence and eventually I stopped checking. Then, on Monday evening, I noticed a little bird, possibly a Blue Tit go in. I rushed indoors and turned on the camera and watched as Dickie first did his exercises, streatched his wings, bobbed up and down then had a good wash and then he settled down for the night and he's been coming back to his little bedroom every night since. The bird box is right next to the front door, on Monday I hoovered the car, called the dog in, chatted for a while to our neighbour and had several kids playing football on my lawn all within inches of Dickie and he never flinched, I think he feels safe enough to go to sleep so I'm hoping he will raise some chicks next year - I'm so excited.

Re: Dickie

Hello Shirley, we bought this one from a garden centre and it cost about 50. Its amazing, I dont know how it works but the picture relayed to the telly is bright and clear even though it must be pitch black inside the box. It has a microphone too so an added bonus is we can hear what people are saying when standing on our door step !!!! I have taken pics of Dickie off the telly but they are not very clear - i'll try to post them this afternoon. I've also got a camera bird table that hasnt been set up yet. I bought that in Aldi and it cost about 30. That has a colour camera. On the box is a website address you might like to check out Home Products Online - Home Furnishings, Furniture & Accessories. I was going to take the bird table to my house in Turkey but thats going to be light years away so think I have a job for Don this afternoon.

I should have tried the website before posting - its wasnt much help - I got more success by searching 'bird box'. Looks like several brands available.

Re: Dickie

Dickie update.

I'm so excited, I feel like an expectant nan. Dickie has come home every night since my last post. You could set your watch by him, every evening as dusk falls he first lands on the magnolia tree, has a good look around and then goes to his home. During the very cold winter I worried about him but I need not because one evening I switched on for my nightly check and he wasnt there, my heart sank thinking something had happened to him in the bitter cold but just before I turned off the telly I saw a shaddow move. It turned out clever Dickie had climbed to the top of the bird house and was cuddled around the camera which must have been warm. Now has met the love of his life and has been busy making a nest for her. We have been enthralled watching them both first clear out dirty Dckies batchelor pad and then set about bringing back first straw, then moss and now its been lined with feathers. This afternoon Dickie was doing his mating dance on the branches outside our sitting room window and ..... wait for it ........ Titty-Anna responded. I'm so excited, how many eggs do Blue Tits lay? how long does it take for them to hatch. Hopefully, now I'll post a photo of Dickie - fingers crossed Arians instructions work for me.

Re: Dickie

Mo, I totally missed this thread when you started it.
Really enjoyed the read, I too am looking forward to hearing how things progress for Dickie and Titty Anna. (love the names.)
Thanks for updating.

Re: Dickie

Don took the picture, he has the patience of a Saint. It was taken through the sitting room window. I wish I could take photos like that. I think we make a good team, Don has the patience and knowledge to get a good photo but he lacks a certain artistic streak, I have to remind him not to get the dustbin or some other undesirable in the background.
