Show Us Your Video's Of Wild Birds !!!

Marlton, NJ

Hi Everyone, I know a lot of us have camera's now that take video so I thought we could try a new subject thread for just video's of birds. You will have to link up your video's to Youtube or some other video hosting site and put the link in your post here along with any information you would like to share about where it is taken etc.

I'm like a lot of you in that I have never tried the video on my camera and I hope this will give people like us the extra incentive to start learning and taking video of birds in our backyards or other favorite places we like to watch birds.

Please be sure to try this as we would absolutely LOVE to see your video's.

Nanny will be starting us off with the first video and I hope many more of you will join in with your own.

Thanks so much!! ^_^

Thanks Pelle!!

I hope we will all use this as a great oppurtunity to learn how to use a great feature on our cameras. I think it will be lots of fun!

There is a learning curve to shooting videos and one that I have learned already is this...If you are inside shooting thru the window check the sound on the TV and take away the dogs squeaky toys!! lol

Pileated on the platform with a Carolina Wren!

Good one nanny! I love the excellent way that video shows the large size of the Pileated Woodpecker! They certainly are gorgeous and I hope to see one someday.


LOL on the learning curves but very "sound" advice. ;-)

Terrific action, nanny. We can see exactly what you see. Have to say I have never tried to record anything either.

Nanny, Great video! We don't get those Woodpeckers here...

Here's a mini video of the mating dance of the male House Finch...pulling out all the stops for a female. I wish it was a bit longer...oh well. Toward the end, DH makes a bit of a commentary...LOLOLOL

Good one Nanny what a great bird to video, I learn that little tip a while back too. lol
Susan I see you used Photo Bucket, does it take long to upload it on there? Nice one of the mating dance.

This one I already posted on the Daily thread, but I think it belongs here. Redpolls feeding frenzy during a snow storm.
Hope it works I copied and paste the link here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AD-9LJrslk

Burn,

GREAT video! They are noisy, that's for sure! I have yet to see a Redpoll here. We can have near 100 Gldfinches and not even a peep out of them...HA!

Here's one of the local Hawks...juvie Cooper's, next to our bedroom window and just finished enjoying a "Scooby Snack". I was tapping on the window so it would look up at me...

Nice videos! Burn that is really a crazy scene at your place with the Redpoll's!

Susan, That Coopers was brave to sit there while you were tapping on the window. He must have really been enjoying his meal.

Yes it would be great to know which site everyone loads their video's to so we can find out which one works best for each one of us.

Lincoln, NE(Zone 5b)

Hello Pelle,

For me, I upload the majority of my videos on photobucket and just a few of my favs to youtube. It's JMO, but I find there are so many "nothing all that great" videos, on youtube. For example, the 2 videos I shared already in this thread aren't the best, so I put them on my photobucket acct. After awhile I delete them and start over...

Here's an example of one I put on my youtube acct...which I still think is pretty cool :D

This is not my video, but I found it while browsing on youtube. This one should be titled..."And we're walking..."
I love it...glad they are all ok...just so much fun to watch them all get back to following Mama again!

That is funny and scarey.

OMG. poor duckies.

Speaking of ducks, here's my little rescue duck from a couple years ago.

Nice ones Mrs Ed! I love ducky sweety!

Lincoln, NE(Zone 5b)

Mrs_Ed,

I'm with Pelle...the ducky melted my heart! Is it still around?

Whiteside County, IL(Zone 5a)

No, ducky isn't around. I turned him over to a licensed rehabilitator. I cried my eyes out (dork!). But he was successfully released, and that's all that mattered.

Grand-Falls, NB(Zone 4a)

That video makes a nice souvenir of you darling little duckling, he's precious, swimming around on your pond.

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Whooooaaaaaa! Great videos everyone.

Marlton, NJ

I really love your waterfall/stream setup Mrs Ed!

Keep the video's coming everyone!

Putnam County, IN(Zone 5b)

Really nice videos all!

awww, I can't wait until they are back.

I wish I would have gotten video of that silly ducky when he helped me weed the garden. He would be right by me and eat worms. I kind of felt like his mom then. I tell you, that experience really made me understand Duckmother's love for these birds.

Marlton, NJ

Very nice video burn!!

Putnam County, IN(Zone 5b)

Oh that is nice burn!

I may try Photobucket. YouTube is soooo slow to upload and I became rather discouraged with using it.

Lincoln, NE(Zone 5b)

Cute video Burn!!!!

Here's a curious House Sparrow...no sound since it was taken from inside the house :)

Last year's nesting (likely sterile) chickadees, take with the bird cam.

Cute one Mrs Ed!
I hope mine nest in the yard again.

Whiteside County, IL(Zone 5a)

Me too! They were adorable.

Grand-Falls, NB(Zone 4a)

Thanks for the comments Pelle, Nanny Mrs-Ed and Susan. Mrs-Ed those are really good videos of your birds. I`m hoping my nest boxes will be used this year. Funny one of the Hawk too.
Your house Sparrow look mighty thirsty Susan. Cute what he did.
I tried to upload one of a Robin building a nest, and it was not accepted. The files was to big. I`d like to know, how to edit some of the video, cut some stuff out, and link it back to the other part. Has anyone tried that?
Susan, here are some noisy Goldfinches for you, lol These are Fledglings wanting to be fed.
This video was taken on the same night as the Hummingbird, pouring rain out.

burn, That is adorable!

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Absolutely! I haven't used my utube to record. Forgot my passwords there...so it will be a while before I can some videos. :((

Marlton, NJ

Well I made a practice video with music (since it was taken from inside the house) now all I have to do is figure out how to upload it to a video site. It is HD video so I don't want to waste hours uploading it. :-)
