I had started downloading the Twitch-hosted long view cam as back-up but it's seldom manned... anyway, the nestcam in particular is quite difficult to focus on when the wind is up (which is quite often) because the cam is not in the same tree, so the unco-ordinated movements of the cam tree and the nest tree make for a very shaky/sway-y view!
