To second the post by Robert, I'd also look for one with an Infared (IR) Flash as it's not visible to the human eye and won't draw attn. if someone walks past. Depending on where your planning on placing the camera a camera with a camouflage pattern would be advantageous for concealment. Just stay away from brightly colored ones as again it will draw attention.

extremely high theft items. Get cameras with steel lockable cages that block access to the SD card. People will will break the camera to get it off the tree. My personal camera was twisted until the entire case was destroyed and they still took it even though it was worthless at that point.
