Adjusted The Clock On The Birds Counting Machine !!!

Last week or so managed to get the supplier of the Pantai Remis BH bird counting machine to reset the clock timing.

With the correction I got the time to monitor from 19:00 to 20:30 hours.

So far so good and I wanted to share some very strange readings that were captured from Sunday April 6th 2014 till Friday April 11th 2014.

Have a look at this photo snapped:



The number of birds entering from 7:00 pm until 8:30pm fluctuate from as high as 294 and as low as 140 birds.

There must be some explanation to the above fluctuation but I have a few to share:


1) It could be due to the weather.  Now we have this raining weather and every time it rained in the evening there will be a higher number of birds entering or leaving the entrance hole.

2) I was playing two external sounds in one thumb drive.  It could be that during the time when the 1st sound is played during the last part of the day time the birds are more attracted to the entrance hole.

3) It might be that those birds that have laid eggs and incubating them returned hole earlier or never leave the BH at all.

4) Some of the birds might return home late ie after 8:30 pm.

No matter what was the real reason I can see the numbers coming into the BH during that selected time frame.

I have instructed the programmer to have one more page to detect the morning activities.

I asked him to install an additional page that will record the number of birds leaving the BH from 6:45 am till 8:00 am.

Once this is done I can now have the ability to check the number of birds that leave in the morning and returned in the evening.

The above gadget is under evaluation and there will be a lot more to be done.

For example it cannot send the SMS message every day after the 8:30pm.

Need a programmer for this and the system need to be upgraded to adroid tab.

No matter how bad it is now it is still one of the best idea for 2014.

From now we have something to measure those wild birds when they return and leaving our BHs.

Call me if you wish to have one install at your BH.

My number is 017 7551318
