Bird Buddy is declaring a "Summer of Birds," having blasted through its target for its new hummingbird-friendly Kickstarter campaign soon before its first AI camera-based product will begin shipping.

Bird Buddy first debuted on Kickstarter in 2020, by offering an AI-based bird table with a removable camera module. The original 5MP Bird Buddy has been the inspiration for an entire genre of products – best bird feeder cameras – but the arrival of a competitive marketplace hasn't knocked Bird Buddy out. It has, however, sent the company back to its Kickstarter roots, with what has to be described as a quirky video to extend the range.
