All of this was filmed with the Mino HD, though not all at the same time. This is actually two different feedings, a couple of hours apart. For one, I set the camera about fifteen feet from the feeder. For the other, I set it inside the feeder, which the birds did not like. (The little birds wouldn’t even go in while the camera was there.)
