Submitted by bentownsend on

The patience—and presence—required to spot new and rare species often conflicts with not only my busy work schedule but also my ADHD. However, thanks to advances in technology, I've found a way to enjoy this activity more easily. I've embarked on a project that combines my passion for birdwatching with my skills in technology, resulting in a live-streamed bird camera that anyone can access online. Here’s how I did it.
