Yesterday Birdkiss launched its first full-metal smart feeder, the S1, as a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. With a built-in smart camera that can identify visiting species, the camera is an exciting option for bird lovers, with real-time notification, but it is also designed to protect the seed from unwanted visitors – namely squirrels.

You can pre-order the Birdkiss S1 on Kickstarter now at the super early bird price of $189 USD. The company hopes to have the final product shipped as early as November 2023, and you can see how things are going by visiting the Kickstarter.
