Temperatures are rising, and you might not want to leave your air conditioning. You can still do some birdwatching, though, thanks to a bird library livestream out of Charlottesville, Virginia.
You’ve likely heard of Little Free Libraries. These small house-like outposts filled with books are meant to encourage reading in communities. People donate used books by placing them inside and then take whatever may interest them. Now, thanks to Creators Kevin Cwalina and Rebecca Flowers there’s one for the birds aptly called Bird Library.
The library-themed bird feeder was created after the pair discovered The Piip Show, a Norwegian live stream with a similar concept but set in a coffee shop. As for the pair behind Bird Library, they wanted to celebrate their love of the creatures as well as their fondness for books.
The project originally began back in 2014, and it’s still going strong in 2020 with upgrades for capacity, a new design, and even a fancy 20-megapixel camera for your very own bird-watching pleasure. You can check out a live stream from Bird Library every day at its YouTube channel.
