This bird feeding station is located in a suburban garden backyard in Pretoria, South Africa. Apart from Pretoria being at 4,600 feet (1400 m) above sea level, the bird feeder is situated between the trees about 20 feet (6m) above ground level.
This bird camera is brought to us by Allen BirdCam, who has been live-streaming since 2010! Please enjoy this small contribution from this wonderful family, as they love sharing a little window into Africa and the wonderful blessings from nature, highlighting the importance of taking good care of our valuable environment.
