Looking for a bird feeder with wireless camera

I know I saw one recently on a blog or shop website somewhere but can't remember where it was. I've searched around but haven't found what I'm looking for. I'm looking for one that can be accessed via an ipad or computer, maybe something solar powered?

Game trail camera? They come on and take a photo when something moves around it... Don't know the name of them. But search game trail cameras.

Just take a regular feeder and along the perches, add a 14-16 gauge bare wire, connected to a long extension cord.

Rather than spend the money on a camera, electricity is very inexpensive and effective. A few times a day, you could just pose all the dead birds in a natural-looking diorama and take as many photos of them as you want.

A bird expert, btw, just mentioned the other day, that back in the day, Flicker was considered a delicacy!

Just kidding, of course...search 'motion activated cameras'

How your fingers doing, btw? I'm thinking of doing something similar, but won't name the location!

If you want to catch them in action, in past I've used those mouse traps. The ones that come in a pad and are stick. Cut those into strips and put them on the perch. The birds will land and get stuck. You have to sneak up on them and catch them, if not they will attempt to fly away and their wings will also get stuck.

It's a christmas present for my dad. I thought about a game camera, but I know I saw one recently where you could watch live. He would never take the time to take the card out of a camera just to look at pictures.
