    Suggestions for outdoor webcam for Mac

    I'm looking to set up a webcam in my chicken coop. I have a Macbook and a MacBook Pro, both running OSX 10.7. I live in northern VT so it really does have to be an outdoor webcam. I've looked at the Foscam outdoor models, and like them, but noticed that they don't support audio for the Mac as they are based on ActiveX.

    I'd love some suggestions on outdoor webcams that others have used and liked.
