Want to chill to some birds?

Link to YouTube if the video isn't embedding properly.


A boring 15-minute video I made to test my GoPro and iMovie. It's just birds on the feeder and the cat watching them--if you need to chill out and watch birds it's great for that.

If you just want the highlights reel, there's a moment of action at 7:30 as Sora jumps onto the windowsill and scares some birds, then he starts sniffing the camera about 8:00. Be sure to stop it before then if you think your heart can't handle the excitement. What I think is our female cardinal, Hera, flies down about 7:00. Around 12:40, you can catch a glimpse of a house finch stuffing sunflower seeds down the gullet of one of its young on the feeder on the right, and at 13:00 they fly up to the fence and the almost-grown chick continues begging.

Wildlife seen: house finches, white-winged doves, cardinal, house cat (inside).

I'm working on how to export it in HD because of course I am. I made some more video this afternoon that features a squirrel climbing down the pole and grabbing seed from the feeder on the right. I bet you can't wait.
