Gotta catch 'em all ... sort of

The Pokemon Go catchphrase applies here in a way. You're not actually catching birds, but you are capturing their images to collect and organize in a gamified app. That data also contributes to an open-source platform tracking bird migrations and populations to help conservation efforts.

Yes, that includes your location data. If you're not big on sharing that type of data, this bird feeder might not be for you. Knowing the location of my feeder is helping conservationists track bird populations does make it a bit easier to swallow, but I wouldn't fault anyone for being reluctant.

The artificial intelligence built into the Bird Buddy camera is supposed to recognize over 1,000 bird species. A quick Google search turns up a factoid from the American Museum of Natural History suggesting there may be 18,000 species in the entire world.

If your feathered friend didn't get a clear selfie or video clip in the camera, there's still a chance the Bird Buddy can identify it. The camera's microphone and AI are designed to identify birds by song as well as photo. Once the bird is identified, you unlock that species' badge in the corresponding app.

Right now, the Super Early Bird price is $219 per bird feeder. Additional accessories include a wall mount, fence mount or suet ball holder, each sold separately.
