Image quality varies by camera model, time of day, and even location of the nest box.
- look for infrared night vision to allow nighttime viewing (birds, like people, cannot see or feel infrared light and are not bothered by it)
- nest box cams will generally be darker than a cam mounted in the open; this can affect color
- look for a cam without a power indicator light, or the ability to disable the light so that it’s not visible to the birds
- look for a cam with a built-in microphone so you can hear what’s going on
