"Woodie Cam" Wood Duck Box

This is a live inside view of a wood duck nest box. The camera is located on Holt Lake near Smithfield, North Carolina. After the eggs hatch the ducklets will remain in the nest for up to 18 hours before jumping out. The camera is mounted on the inside top corner of the nest box facing down. Check below the videos for recent updates or if you have a question the cam owner or one of the community members will help just leave a comment and check back for an answer.

Hello ice! You probably won’t see this but we missed the exit off I-95 in NC to see this lovely lake sad We saw signs for Smithfield for miles ahead but somehow missed the exit. Maybe on our return south in fall we will find it!

http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/114020639 I used a different computer and was finally able to trim the length of Punky Mergansers 2018 jump video down to about 5 minutes.

For the inside box I use the Hawkeye Nature Cam for 100 $$$ comes with 100 foot cable and AC power adapter. Uses RCA connectors. 100 foot extension cables are 40 $$$. The jumpcam I use my i-phone and the Ustream app. with a WiFi extender and an AC extension cable.

Old TVs and VCRs use RCA connectors. To use with a computer you need an E-Z Cap. Not sure if they make them for windows 10.
The Lake View is a LogiTech WebCam with a USB cable.
If you live more than 200 feet from the box I am not sure what you would need.

Oh, Very important, The connectors and connector bodies on the cables are not water proof. They MUST be kept DRY.

lol Jenn, I have 2 degrees. One in Fish and Wildlife management and one in Electronics and computers. To stream these cams in duck boxes I have needed both degrees. I am also lucky to live within 200 feet of where the ducks might nest, So it all came together.

I knew you had to have some good education in Electronics Rup content Also pretty nice that you have a degree in Fish and Wildlife management and the great proximity to the lake to be able to do all of this. You have provided so much enjoyment for so many.

thank you in pink block.jpg
