Camera Info

FeederCam and weather station setup

The camera is a Stardot Netcam in a weatherproof housing. It’s located in my backyard in Bloomington, MN, and pointed northeast. Due to the cold winters here in Minnesota, it’s housed in the heavy duty weatherproof enclosure. Images are uploaded every 15 seconds during daylight hours, Central Time. During the winters here, days are short so daylight is only 7:30am to 4:30pm. In the summer, it’s much longer, lasting from 5:30am to 9:30pm. If the image is completely dark, please check back in the morning. Send an email to (making the appropriate substitutions), or tweet @lizmstanley if you see anything cool on the feedercam!
