This year I thought I would install a bird box in our back garden, I have a shed at the end of the garden and the gable end which faces the house is North facing, which apparently is a good direction for a bird box (in the northern hemisphere anyway).
I thought it would be interesting to put a Raspberry Pi camera in it, so I did, along with a coupe of temperature modules. It is generally based on this guide by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, but I have enhanced it significantly by using picamera.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
