Introduction: Arduino Bird Trap

Picture of Arduino Bird Trap

it is a simple fun arduino project that let you catch birds , its only for fun .

Step 1: The Body

Picture of The Body

you will sheets of wood (most likely) but you can use all sorts of stuff like paper ,steel ,plastic ......

i didn't do the measurements but it is pretty simple and I am sure will will do fine.

Step 2: The Material

Picture of The Material

the electronic material are :

-arduino (14$)

-a servo (4$)

-some jump wires(1$)

-a bred board(3$)

-a push button(0.5$)

Step 3: Wiring It Up

Picture of Wiring It Up

it is pretty simple

Step 4: The Code

just copy past:

#include Servo myservo; // create servo object to control a servo

#define ServoM 12 //Connected to the servo motor. #define In 8 //Pin connected to the IN button. #define BarLow 180 //Low position of the barrier. #define BarUp -90 //Up position of the barrier. #define trigPin 7 //TRING PIN 7 #define echoPin 6 //ECHO PIN 6


void setup(){ myservo.attach(ServoM); // attaches the servo. Serial.begin (9600); pinMode(trigPin, OUTPUT); pinMode(echoPin, INPUT); pinMode(In, INPUT); // set "IN" button pin to input digitalWrite(In, HIGH); // Connect Pull-Up resistor. myservo.write(BarLow); //Barrier in the low position // delay(1000); }

//================================================================ void loop(){

long duration, distance; digitalWrite(trigPin, LOW); delayMicroseconds(2); digitalWrite(trigPin, HIGH); delayMicroseconds(10); digitalWrite(trigPin, LOW); duration = pulseIn(echoPin, HIGH); distance = (duration/2) / 29.1; //================================================================ if(digitalRead(In)==0) { myservo.write(BarLow);

} if (distance <6) { myservo.write(BarUp);}



Step 5: Finnaly

now it is pretty simple

-the servo controls the door

-the button open the door

- if sonar sensor detect anything closer than 7 cm the door closes

and now it's up to u put a little bol ,fell it with bird food ,put the sonar sensor next to it and wait to catch a bird

hope you enjoy it subscribe for more

Did you actually make this project yet?


yes I did it

It's a bad idea to catch a bird. You don't know what disease does it carry. Something like H5N1 may be carried y the bird and you have a certain chance of getting infected.

What will you do with the bird? grill it, or feed it to the cat?

Consider someone catches you this way

do not be this sensetive I am going to catch it ,feed him, keep it for a while then let it go

I love animals I have a dog a cat some duks and fishes and frogs
