Bird feeder + Webcam + Recog Software = Cool data

It's been snowing for a few days and our garden is amazingly full of birdlife this afternoon. A few attempts with the SD9 to capture a decent pic have left me annoyed and frustrated. A quick surf for some bird photography ideas pops up a Make video for a webcam bird table recipe.

It may have to wait for slightly more clement weather, but I have to build one of these, push the feed through some image / face recognition software and play with recognising the robins from the finches. Flow that data into some tally software and I can build some cool bird table traffic data that even Bill Oddie would be jealous of.
