Certainly, the photos from a 5MP Raspberry Pi camera aimed at a nest should be quite impressive!!

For those without such high skills in electronics and Linux, a Loosafe 1080P outdoor wifi camera (LS-C6) will probably exceed your expectations. I run mine with MicroSD cards for onboard storage which I can then download from my PC (on the same network). You can choose the frequency it snaps a still photo, and set recording hours for video. You can set them to push images to a FTP server, if you're computer savvy. I've chosen the ones with 8mm and 12mm lenses to limit my wide angle views, although I did purchase one with a zoom lens to allow me to choose which fixed focal length will work best in a particular install location. These cameras basically require 12V power, and wifi (or a wired ethernet connection). I use these cameras to snap the sunrise photos I miss taking every morning, because life doesn't always afford the chance to stop and watch the sunrise.
