Having spent a long time looking up options on the internet, I am interested in what others are doing to make this work. Do you use a baby monitor? Purchase the Nature's Window 3 Outdoor Sound Monitor, create your own? I want to sit at my desk with the windows closed (winter, air conditioning on, rainy day, etc) and hear the birds inside my home office. I could mount something about 30 feet away if needed. We also use products to enable Alexa to manage outdoor string lights, white-lit Christmas tree, speakers with an indoor receiver, etc, and that would be a win to have something be Alexa-enabled. Thanks very much in advance for your ideas, comments and innovation .
