Blue Jay Cam

, ,

This is one of my favorite personal projects, especially knowing it’s being viewed by thousands of schoolchildren around the globe!

Blue Jay Cam is an annual, live streaming event that broadcasts the early life cycle of a family of blue jays.  From egg-laying to first flight, the cam captures a unique look at the way blue jays raise their young.

In order to run the Blue Jay Cam site we need to use a lot of different technology, software, marketing and promotions.  Among the most challenging is raising the funds necessary to keep the site alive each season.  We use Ustream to broadcast our video, YouTube and other social video sites to drive viewership and TeeSpring to raise money.

New for 2015, the Blue Jay Cam will use a completely wireless camera (the Logitech Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam) connected to our Ustream account which is then broadcast through the site.
