Bird Buddy smart bird feeder
Bird Buddy is a smart bird feeder that notifies you of feathered visitors, captures their photos and organizes them in a beautiful collection. The Bird Buddy is currently raising funds on Kickstarter and features a built-in camera that snaps a picture of the bird and sends it to your smartphone. The invention has come after birdwatching rates in the UK rocketed up since the start of lockdown. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) has seen a 70% rise in visitors to its website this year, and it is estimated there are 3 million adult bird watchers in the UK and 45 million in the US. Not only will the hi-tech bird feeder organize and curate images of which birds use it – but it will also help with vital conservation efforts. The Bird Buddy will provide a comprehensive database of bird populations as well as their geographical movement all over the world.
