About the House Wren Webcam
The streaming live wildlife webcam you
are viewing is located Murrysville, PA. The webcam is broadcast live 24/7.
The camera is in
a marsh area about 1000' from a power source
and Internet access. The
camera is inside a nest box which was the home of a house wren. Due to
the extreme distance this camera is from the streaming electronics we
are not able to provide a sound MIC inside the nest box because of the
noise issues that are caused by the distance.
The house wren eggs started hatching on 7/22/2010 and the chicks will
fledge in 14 to 16 days. Be sure to check back often to what the
progression of the chicks and action at this webcam site.
This is part of the
PixController, Inc. nest box webcam project. We have set up 6 different
nest boxes. The nest boxes rang in size for larger birds such as Owls
and Kestrels down to smaller birds such as Blue Birds and Wrens.
The nest boxes are
setup in different locations from fields, woods, and wetlands to attract
a verity of birds throughout the nesting season. The nest boxes all
setup in wild locations and not in a backyard setting. We will move the
cameras around into different nest boxes as they become active.
We thoroughly enjoy
being able to use our technology to share these educational experiences
and unique insights into nature with our viewers.
