ATTENTION: USTREAM IS DISCONTINUING ITS FREE SERVICE EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 17, 2018.
Unfortunately I can't afford to pay $99/month. Looks like they only want professionals here. So I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all my loyal viewers. It's been fun!
I still have an account on Vaughn Live as vabirdwatcher and will work on getting my broadcast up and running if at all possible. The URL is https://vaughnlive.tv/vabirdwatcher.
A backyard bird feeder web cam streaming live from Dumfries, Virginia (approx. 30 miles south of Washington, DC) USA. Your broadcaster is VirginiaBirdwatcher. Watch local birds, animals and check the weather.
The feeders contain hulled sunflower seeds, mixed tree nuts and dried meal worms. You can find most of the feeders I use online or at local retailers. The large bird bath is used year round and in the winter a heater keeps the water from freezing.
The broadcast generally starts around sunrise and stops at 7:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. There is an extended broadcast on Monday and Friday until 10:00 p.m. Always subject to change.
I was a broadcaster on Justin.tv under the name of VAbirdwatcher from 2007 until it shut down in 2014. I already had a UStream channel and reactivated the account in 2014. I love birds and wildlife, but because of physical handicaps I had to figure out how to bring nature to me, instead of the other way around.
I can also be found on Twitter - https://twitter.com/NoVAbirdwatcher.
I broadcast using a basic outdoor WiFi camera and connection. Sometimes the signal strength is good. Sometimes it isn't. I have no way to install a wired system. There is no sound until I can figure out a way to add a wireless microphone to the camera. I've tried a lot of different mics, but nothing works. This is the best I can do. If you know how to add sound or have any suggestions please let me know!
I hope you enjoy my channel and would appreciate a FOLLOW!
