pentax zx-60

Can you please let me know if the above model has the capability of using a
"radio controlled shutter release", if not is there some type of remote control unit
I can use instead. I like taking bird photos and if I can use a radio control
shutter release system it would be wonderful for me.

Thank you.

The ZX-60 is a bargain body, so I doubt you can do that. You can't even use A-series lenses on it!

Adam's right. The ZX-60 was Pentax entry-level auto-focus SLR. It had no provision for remote shutter release. Some Pentax cameras from that period had provision for a wired release, but not the ZX-60.

If it used the wired release, you could probably rig up something, using the remote release and cutting into the wire, but without that, it will be very difficult to do what you want. You would have to open up the camera and modify it internally, which is something I wouldn't attempt.
