Bird Buddy Launches Nature Intelligence to Improve Interactions with Surrounding Birds

Bird Buddy, the award-winning tech for nature company, has launched its new AI product called Nature Intelligence which delivers unique bird identification. Nature Intelligence includes additional features, asked for by the Bird Buddy community such as Bird Care, Pet Alerts and additional species recognition. Concurrently launched is the Nature Connected Home functionality, which directly connects Bird Buddy’s Smart Feeder, a TIME Best Invention of 2023 and Smart Hummingbird Feeder to home devices, live streaming nature.

Nature Intelligence brings you closer than ever before to the nature around your home and teaches you how to help it not just survive but thrive. Name That Bird is a key feature from Bird Buddy’s new built-in AI product. Without the use of bird banding, the AI identifies each individual bird by their unique features, opening up the opportunity to name your favorite visitors. Nature Intelligence also detects when birds are sick or injured, something bird enthusiasts are keen to know about in order to help prevent disease spread. In addition, you can now receive alerts for when pets, notably cats, are detected at your feeder. At the same time, Bird Buddy feeders will now recognize many other backyard creatures such as butterflies, bees, lizards and raccoons, as well as the obvious squirrel.

Franci Zidar, CEO Bird Buddy said, “This is an absolute game changer in how we relate to the birds in our yard and is designed to unlock a deeper connection that was previously impossible. Imagine naming your favorite Northern Cardinal, Bob and getting notified whenever Bob pays you a visit. Well, now it’s possible. It’s an experimental feature that could someday transform conservation efforts as it improves in accuracy.”

Zidar continued, “The detail made available by the 5MP high-resolution Bird Buddy sensor present in all our feeders along with its close-up format is designed to bring out the full character of visiting birds. This makes Bird Buddy uniquely capable of capturing the features required to make this work. The potential is massive and I couldn’t be more excited for what this unlocks.”

With the partner launch of the Nature Connected Home, Bird Buddy has unlocked access for nature to enter your home through your choice of connected device. Bird song and chatter can now be streamed through Alexa, Bird Buddy Feeder live streams can be broadcast on a smart TV to rival other VOD services and users receive insights and recommendations, meaning nature is welcomed into the home on a daily basis.

Explaining further, Zidar said, “Your screens can become windows into the nature around your home when you’re not using them. If you feel like it, you can broadcast the sounds of nature from your yard into your indoor living spaces. It’s an effortless and magical integration that helps you stay connected with the nature around you by allowing its visual and auditory beauty to seep through the smart displays and speakers of your home. Bringing your backyard into your home is a smart move. Our mission is to heal our relationship with nature and ultimately make a measurable positive impact on our local ecosystems.”

Nature Intelligence and the Nature Connected Home are available through Bird Buddy Pro subscription service. For $5.99 per month, Bird Buddy users can access all the Pro services (ADD). Bird Buddy’s Smart Bird Feeder and Smart Hummingbird Feeder units come with the standard free Bird Buddy app.
