Most wildlife cams I find are stop-action, with the picture refreshed every few minutes. It was such a treat to discover a chicken cam that's been up for five years, streaming all day long into the chicken yard. Here's a review: "There is a man living in coastal Massachusetts. He has a small farm, the Flying Skunk Farm, on which he keeps some 70 chickens and a couple of goats. "Nicky Vasalini" (that's his nickname, and there's an interesting story there) also has a certain bigness of heart. He is one of a handful of people in the world who share their barnyard bounty with the world. And I'm not speaking here of the farmer's market. No, Vasalini has installed a chicken cam in the yard where the birds spend their days. And unlike many chicken cams I've seen, which merely tout slowly refreshed stills, this one features live, streaming video and audio. And Gumby. Go for a visit. It's oddly fascinating and pacifying. At least until the roosters get going." The story behind the chicken owner: http://www.mvgazette.com/news/2003/11/28/web_camera_chickens.php And here's the chicken cam: http://www.flyingskunk.com/live.html The yard is extremely muddy right now, thanks to those epic rainstorms New England is experiencing. Nevertheless, the roosters soldier on, comforting the hens, and everybody wanders by the camera for their close-up, including the goats. So my question is why don't more people set up live streaming cams like this? Can anybody explain it to a computer neophyte? (Does the bandwidth cost a lot of money?) Anyway, I highly recommend you check it out. Kids would love it.
