Hi there,

I've got birds nest at the roof of my house. I would like to install a
web cam before birds come back and transmit live picture though my
website. What prerequisites do I need it order to succeed and how much
roughly it would cost me?

I assume I would need a proper web cam, which could stand bad weather
and temperature changes. The place where birds have a nest is quite
dark as well, so probably it would be good to have one with a light or
something?

The second thing is how to stream ( with a good rate, at least 1 frame
a sec ) the picture from the camra through my website? Do I need a
specific hosting?

What else would I need to do in order to succeed with my plan? Birds
are coming soon! Need help!

Thanks,
Adam
