Bird Photo Booth Lets You Take Up Close Pics Of Flying Feathered Friends


If you’re going to go to the trouble of getting a bird feeder, you’re probably the type of individual who wouldn’t hate having a couple of high quality pictures of the animals you feed. That’s not always easy to do, since birds are easily spooked, but the Bird Photo Booth can help you out. It’s basically just a bird feeder with space for an iPhone or GoPro. Yeah, you have to provide your own camera, but at least it’ll be protected from the elements inside the feeder. And once it’s in there, you can access it remotely either through Wifi or Bluetooth, and use something like this wireless camera application to watch in real-time, and snap pictures when you want. Ok, $150 is a lot of money to ask for a watertight bird feeder that doesn’t even come with its own camera, but hey, it’s not like there are a ton of other alternatives like this out there. At least they’ll throw in a macro and a polarizing lens to help you take better shots.

Morbid And Cool: Bird Skull Jewelry

Fashion accessories can be as much about making a statement as they are about personalizing your look. We’re not sure what the statement would be if you chose to wear the above Bird Skull jewelry, from Calvert County resident Marisa Rand, but you’ll definitely give people the impression you feel strongly about something. Even if you don’t. Which is why we’re digging the pieces. No, they’re not actual bird skulls, they’re shrunken down reproductions. Marisa makes a silicon mold from a fallen bird, then casts the pieces in resin. There are miniature sparrow skull rings, black magpie skull necklaces, and even a parakeet skull necklace. The pieces are very reasonably prices in the $13 to $19 range.
