Kickstarter project Bird Photo Booth is gaining some traction. By putting your iPhone in a birdhouse-shaped box and opening a remote-control photography app like Wireless Camera, you can capture your backyard buddies as they come in for dinner.

By placing the birdseed right in front of the camera, the Bird Photo Booth catches the quick creatures in a calm moment.
This photo was taken with an iPhone 4S inside the Bird Photo Booth.

The Bird Photo Booth can be either hung from a wall or attached to a tripod and has a mount inside it for an iPhone, iPod Touch or GoPro camera. On the booth’s sliding aluminum door, an interchangeable macro lens helps the iPhone focus on the subject just inches away. Outside the booth, a perch holds a bowl of birdseed to attract the birds in your backyard. The Bird Photo Booth also has a post to hang a nectar feeder for hummingbirds.

Users of the Bird Photo Booth can snap photos from a distance using their Bluetooth or WiFi-connected devices without scaring away their subjects. For the more talkative bird watcher, Bird Photo Booth also advertises the ability to Facetime with the birds by using WiFi and an additional iOS device.

You can pre-order your Bird Photo Booth from Kickstarter for $149. There is no set shipping date yet and the project's not yet reached its Kickstarter goal, so any purchase comes with some risk.
