Its Full HD camera is as sensitive to movement as any typical security camera, which means you’ll never miss a visit, and it even has features to scare away unwanted birds and squirrels. In fact, the Birdfy can essentially double up as an outdoor security camera. To get the most from you bird feeder check out these guidelines from UK bird charity the RSPB.
