Contrary to what is promoted in modern society, we do not actually need fancy electronic devices and portable gadgets in order to ensure entertainment for hours or to keep a child’s interest. The simple wildlife found in every garden can enthral young ones and older ones alike with their comings and goings and especially with their preparations for bringing up their young. Unlike when playing a games console, children actually learn something useful when observing nature and the wildlife found in it.
Bird Boxes equipped with a bird box camera are one of the best ways of observing birds in the garden. Bird boxes provide an attractive and sheltered location for many species of bird to make their home and raise their young. They feel protected from predators and away from prying eyes. Such a bird box also provides protection from the elements and a degree of warmth ideally suited to raising the young. What is more, if located in a carefully thought through position, the birds will be able to be observed from a window of the house at very close proximity, ensuring the most views of the birds’ daily activity.
The addition of a Bird Box Camera can make all the difference, especially for young children who are mesmerised by the young birds being reared by their parents. The bird box camera allows intimate views that would never normally be seen without such an aid. It allows the interior to be observed throughout the process of the parents building the nest, laying and incubating the eggs, the eggs hatching and becoming young chicks, the chicks being fed and reared by their parents and eventually the chicks learning to fly and leaving the nest. All of this can be viewed from the comfort of the living room with the use of a bird box camera. The camera can capture scenes that people very rarely ever see without disturbing the birds or alerting them to the humans’ presence.
Not only do bird boxes and the bird box camera provide entertainment for young children and adults alike, the whole process is invaluable to a child’s education. The child will learn about such things in school but how much more pertinent will that education be if the child sees the process with their own eyes in their own home? Viewing such a process will teach the child valuable lessons not only about wildlife but about the cycles of life and death that can be difficult for young ones to understand. Nowhere else would children be able to gain such insight into the natural world so easily. It is important not to pass up on such a valuable opportunity to enhance the standard education of children.
Bird boxes also produce an incredible atmosphere in the garden when combined with other bird-friendly items such as bird feeders and bird tables. The garden will experience constant comings and goings with a huge variety of bird types. Such a garden really is a spectacular sight to observe from within the home where the birds are not disturbed and have no idea that they are being watched. Moreover, for avid birdwatchers it provides the opportunity to observe birds without the aid of binoculars and telescopes.
So bird boxes and bird box cameras provide a truly unique experience for young and old alike, but especially for young children who can gain so much from this activity. Equipment of this type allows birds to be observed clearly from the comfort of the home, without disturbing the very birds that are being watched.
