    Howdy- I'm the new kid (forgive me). Where are the handy, detailed instructions on how to build this kit?

    You really should add a video or still camera that turns on when the tweet fires off. I love to feed the birds on my porch, myself. I know a Sea Gull who would ilke BREAK that house.

    If I understand the video, these 'B Square" things are some sort of premade units which can be mix and matched depending on the project?

    can you provide a link for these things? To be honest I don't think i really care to be notified when a bird uses a bird house. Not really my thing but I can imagine some other projects that would be cool.

    As a general comment, I think that the internal electronics unit should be mounted to the underside of roof so that the floor area is free for nest construction. otherwise the birds will be scared away, leaving one to ponder what the point is of a technically savvy birdhouse that wont actually provide a house for a bird.

    You've got about 50 more hours to buy B-squares on Kickstarter!

    Not really bird friendly, but I like the idea! :D
    Maybe make like a false / fake floor where you put the wires / arduino etc.
