Welcome to Sparkbird.

The world’s first automated bird watcher!

Tell it your favorite species and never miss a visit again.

We started this project because we were always wondering what rare species we were missing at our feeders. While at work, running errands, or spending time with our kids it is easy to miss that rare visit from a Spark. That is why we created Sparkbird.
