The Small Bird Feeder webcam will close soon.

Sorry, but I can't give an exact date or time for soon! Maybe today, maybe in a couple of days.
Thanks to all who have made such valuable contributions to this subject. Your interest and the sharing of knowledge has been gratifying to the organisers.

This webcam will be put to further use on another nest in the near future. As it is a good camera, giving a clear picture, we shall be happy with that!

Further facts and figures - in the few months that the Small Bird Feeder webcam has been online, there have been 600,000 views (connections to) the webcam site. That could be made up of you clicking on it 20 times a day for 90 days, and others connecting at other times, other frequency.

Mr. Bird Feeder will visit us here to close this topic for this season.
Tank you Jo and LK, this Web cam has been very educational !!!

It was very interesting and pleasant to look at the birds and read the postings, I do hope the "camera" will be opened again in late autumn or beginning of winter, thanks for all!

Yes, thank you, Mr BirdFeeder!

Translation of Mr. BirdFeeder's goodbye (for this season) http://www.looduskalender.ee/node/3051 is coming. Meanwhile, Mr. BirdFeeder says thank you to all - watchers, birds, squirrel and cat - birdfeeding will go on as long as there is still thick snow, but camera is needed on another site where soon some black storks hopefully arrive.

PS. If any visiting birds have flown away from Mr. BirdFeeder's list maybe we can add them in the English translation?
AllyKass remembered the woodpecker. Any others? - Post here, please, to-day.

Here is the translation of Mr. Bird Feeder's message, on Looduskalender main page (not visible there, yet.)

Dear Friends!

Spring is here and the Bird Feeder Camera closes. So here I would like to say thank you to all the birds who came to eat the food, and all the bird watchers who were intensely engaged in the bird world that opened on their computer screens. Big thanks also to the Vabaühenduste Fond, and Elion and EENet, who provided the high-quality video transmission.

Because there is plenty of snow yet in Otepää, the bird feeding will go on. But the web camera soon goes on an interesting journey: to the forest where we eagerly wait for our friends the black storks to arrive.

But we hope to meet again next winter around the bird feeder!

Yours sincerely,

Mr. BirdFeeder

A LITTLE STATISTICS

Now that the season for this webcam has ended, this topic will be locked at the end of this day. I expect webmaster will want to archive it, and make space for something else!

Another 10 - 12 hours for you to make your comments here, if you like to.
