Mounting your BirdCam Pro
The key to taking great BirdCam Pro photos
and videos is proper mounting and placement
of the BirdCam Pro. One reason the BirdCam
Pro captures such unique images is that it can
be positioned very close to wild birds without
frightening them. Most BirdCam photos are
taken within three feet of their subjects.
BirdCam users aim their BirdCams at a wide
variety of targets: bird feeders, bird houses,
nests, bird baths, common perches, etc.
Accordingly, we designed the BirdCam Pro so
that it can be mounted many different ways.
Take a moment to learn more about mounting
your BirdCam properly, and you will quickly
see improvement in your images.
Basic Principles
1. Stability - Mount the BirdCam securely
so that it does not move. It should never be
hung from above or mounted to an object
that moves in the wind. If the BirdCam is
moving, it will cause the motion sensor to
trigger incorrectly.
Page 6
2. Focus - Note that the BirdCam Pro lens
can be focused manually. This is a snap. Use
the included measuring tape to measure the
distance between the BirdCam Pro and its
target. Set the lens accordingly.
3. Lighting - As with all cameras, it is best to
avoid aiming the BirdCam at the source of
light (for instance, the sun). Ideally during
daytime, position the BirdCam Pro so it is
facing its target, e.g. a bird feeder, but facing
away from the sun.
On the Ground
For ground-loving birds, set up is simple.
Just position your BirdCam directly on the
ground. If you’re concerned about it falling
over, use the included Stretch Cords to secure
the BirdCam to the base of a tree, a post, or
other solid feature (a brick works great).

SECTION 4 - TIMELAPSE
To enter the TIMELAPSE mode, move the Rotary Dial to the TIMELAPSE position.
4.1 TEST PHOTO - Press OK button to take test photo with
current settings. The display will show a countdown and then
capture a photo. This photo will then appear on the display for
review until the OK button is pressed again.
4.2 OPTIONS - Press the LEFT (<) button to enter the OPTIONS menu. Once in the OPTIONS
Menu, Press LEFT (<) button to move between the option windows. To change the options,
press, (+) or (–) to change the value, and LEFT (<) and RIGHT (>) buttons to move between fields.
Press OK to confirm changes to the option.
4.3 RESET TIMELAPSE OPTIONS - Select this option to
reset Timelapse options to factory defaults.
4.3.1 TIMELAPSE INTERVAL - Press LEFT (<) button. Press (+)
or (-) buttons to choose between 12 different settings: 24 hours,
12 hours, 6 hours, 3 hours, 1 hour, 30 min, 15 min, 10 min, 5 min,
1 min, 30 sec and 10 sec. Press the OK button to save changes.

3.2.3 NO. OF SHOTS PER DELAY - Select the desired

Tripods
For very precise placement and aiming,
no mounting method will beat a camera
tripod. A standard threaded tripod mount
(¼”-20) is embedded into the bottom and
rear of the BirdCam Pro. This allows users
to attach the BirdCam Pro to any tripod
or any of thousands of 3rd-party camera
mounting accessories – providing users
with a world of creative opportunities
through angle and height adjustment.
Mounting Strap
The BirdCam Pro comes with a Mounting
Strap to facilitate mounting. You will find
slots in the rear of the BirdCam Pro
through which a strap can be threaded.
Many users will tighten the BirdCam Pro to
a tree, then wedge a stick or piece of bark
between the BirdCam Pro and the tree to
facilitate aiming.
Mounting Arm Accessories
Wingscapes offers two optional mounting
accessories for the BirdCam Pro:
BirdCam Mounting Arm
(WSBR01)
and
Outdoor Camera Mounting Bracket
(WSBR02)
Both accessories allow you to easily mount
the BirdCam to a common bird feeder
pole, a post, a stake, a wall, or a tree. The
primary difference between these two is
that the BirdCam Mounting Arm is longer.
Numerous angle settings and 360° rotation
make these mounting arms one of the
most versatile setup options.
Your Wingscapes BirdCam Pro offers
nearly limitless mounting opportunities,
allowing you to capture images of wildlife
in practically any situation.

your feeder and BirdCam Pro, visit our
