A reporter with Audubon Magazine tested a Haikubox on her New York City fire escape. In her review, published in the Spring 2023 issue of Audubon Magazine, she wrote that it was “an innovative product for bird nerds who might want to run outside to spot a rare visitor, stay on notice for migration waves, or dive into a trove of data. This product’s other audience is anyone who wants to level up their birding-by-ear skills.”
“We found the Haikubox to be an innovative, fun, and somewhat addictive product. From the mobile app, you can customize alerts for target species or new visitors, play back the audio clips of songs, and view and sort your datqa in a variety of ways — all while contributing to community science efforts.”
She also noted “What’s truly priceless: getting familiar with the dawn chorus without leaving bed.” You can read the full article on the National Audubon website.
