Bird Buddy smart camera bird feeder lives up to promise

Techstination feature for Tuesday, May 2, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   Bird Buddy is one of those products that comes along once and a while and delivers on its promise.   It is a smart, camera equipped bird feeder…that uses an app and AI to identify birds that come to the feeder…and fill you in with fun facts about the visitors.     CEO Franci Zidar..

“It’s a bit of a gamified experience of bird feeding.  We like to think that we are really, basically, making bird watching a lot more accessible.  Bird watching takes a lot of effort and Bird Buddy kind of makes that lot of effort really effortless for the customer and the user.”

Bird Buddy isn’t cheap at about 200 dollars…but the quality of the feeder and camera are impressive.  Up next….a Kickstarter campaign for a smart hummingbird feeder.   Learn more at
