Paparazzi Bird Feeder

The Paparazzi Bird Feeder detects the presence of a bird, takes its picture and posts the picture to Dropbox, Twitter or Flickr.

The hardware consists of a Raspberry Pi camera module, a 38 kHz demodulating IR sensor (similar to those used in remote-control receivers) and an IR diode. The entire setup can be powered for hours from a power pack, but is designed for tethered operation.

For more details, including instructions for building your own feeder, see the project's website. You can check out the latest pictures here.

TO DO

  • Don't take pictures after dusk or before dawn (but record events in the log).
