Such joy!

This app brings myself and my family so much joy! My 9-year-old asks to watch the live feed every day and has never shown such interest in birds before.

The quality is awesome!

Excellent camera quality. Has ability to send photos off to experts for ID if you aren't sure. Can save photos into bird types. I like the ability to learn sounds of each bird.

Learning is now enjoyable

So much fun and very informative! I've always enjoyed watching birds do their thing, but never really delved too deep into birding knowledge. Highly reccomended!

Frequently asked questions

After a lot of research and consultation, we’ve come to the conclusion that any attempt to prevent squirrels from visiting would be a futile task. Instead, we focused on making sure that the materials used will be able to withstand significant damage, which should prevent the squirrels from destroying the feeder itself. Right now our priorities lie in making sure that no harm could come to our feathered friends. We’ve shared some best humane practices to keep your squirrels away from your feeder here.

Due to incredibly high demand, Bird Buddy is currently out of stock! But you can still place a pre-order! Your order will be added to the queue for the new batch of Bird Buddies that will be shipped around July 2023.

5MP with WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) and a 720p video stream. 720p mainly for battery life purposes, as the component will be able to output 1080p video as well. You can see some of our user’s photos here!

This version of Bird Buddy sadly does not have local storage, which means it does require a Wi-Fi connection. Once Bird Buddy is connected to your home Wi-Fi, it uses that connection to send the stream to your mobile device. We are looking into local storage options for the future versions of Bird Buddy. If you’re having trouble connecting your feeder to your Wi-Fi network, you may need to install a Wi-Fi extender to boost your signal into your backyard.

We have several great articles and tutorials that guide you through the process of setting up your Bird Buddy and connecting it with the app. You can start with our article on Connectivity and Connection Requirements, and move on to the In-App Pairing flow. You can also explore our full support section here!

Sharing is caring! The Bird Buddy app allows you to share the experience with friends and family by adding up to three people to your feeder through the app.

Depending on how many photos you take and how much you stream the video feed, the battery can last anywhere between 5 and 15 days. The electronic module is detachable and rechargeable via the USB-C cable that is included in the order. If you want to have the stream running constantly, you can plug Bird Buddy into a power source and never lose sight of just what is going on in your backyard. You can also decide to purchase the solar roof add-on for a continuous charge during daylight!

Please take it to a proper recycling point! If in doubt about where to find one, please get in touch with your local municipal office or waste disposal service.

Newly placed pre-orders can only be shipped to the US, Canada, European Union, UK, Norway and Switzerland. No worries, though: all existing pre-orders will be fulfilled as promised, regardless of the shipping destination. We are currently working on an affordable and effective solution for worldwide shipping of future orders, and hope to have a solution soon!

We will be translating the app into all major world languages! At the moment, our app is available in English (US), English (UK), German, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, and Slovenian.

Yes, the feeder itself is weatherproof! The central module that houses the camera will withstand temperatures ranging from -5°F to 120°F (-20°C to 50°C). It is also detachable so you can easily take it out and safely store it inside on extreme days.

We offer a 30-day refund policy from the day you receive your order. Our standard warranty period is 24 months from the date of delivery, and it applies to all of our products completely free of charge. 

You can find our full Refund Policy and Warranty information here!
