The Bird Buddy team handled this whole thing beautifully. There was a lot standing in their way after the crowdfunding wrapped - covid, supply chain issues, manufacturing issues etc. I’m glad they communicated with everyone and super excited to get my feeder this September!
I think this is one of the best made and well thought-out products I've yet backed on Kickstarter. The fulfilment was delayed due to the huge numbers of backers and of course, the pandemic - but having waited, it has been very worth the effort here in the UK. I really enjoy the feeder (although it's a constant effort to keep the squirrels at bay, and encourage new smaller visitors to use it). The firmware for the wifi/camera module has progressively been improved. The battery life is surprisingly good (it deep sleeps at night, and drip charges from the solar roof - even in wet and dark England!). They are continually working on improving the app experience, and the unofficial Facebook groups are great for sharing snapshots with local communities as well. I'm excited to see them expand the range. Bravo!
I just love this idea. I see a lot of negative comments online about this being a scam, but there’s no way a company created to scam people would send out constant updates to their customers. It’s a startup that began in the beginning of Covid. This is normal.
Finally received my Bird Buddy and I have to say it was worth the wait!!!! Well built and packaged, beautiful photos and a really lovely app. AI works surprisingly well too. One hint though, you'll have to wait a few days or weeks to start getting good photos as birds take some time to adjust to it.
