Taking Down the RPi Camera Over My Hummingbird Feeder

As the temperature heats up it’s time to take down my hummingbird feeder. While the winds have cooled down the valley for the last few days, 100+ days are slowly creeping in and I need to take it down before the CPU melts.

When I took it down last year I though, meh, how hard could it be to put back up. And then I put it back up in the Fall last year and had nothing but problems.

This year, I wanted to document the wires and what not so that I can just put it back up once the temps cool down outside.

Anyway, I could describe it or just take some pictures … so here are some pictures for when I need to set it up again later this year.
