My Arlo cameras are adequate to identify critters in my back yard at night (raccoons, opossums, feral cats) with motion sensing lights. During the daytime, they are sometimes activated by birds on the feeder, but the image isn’t adequate for identification. I don’t know how that would work in a nest box.
Mine have rechargeable batteries, but can be hard wired.
