We're often asked how we got started. First of all, we're birders. And we all have technology and design backgrounds. Back in 2004, Jay laboriously loaded some bird songs from CDs to his new iPod.
Jay and Charlie took this very first "birdPod" on a field trip, and they were bombarded with questions: "Where did you get that?" "Where can I get one?" Thousands of birders are now "birdJammers", and we're proud of our 98% customer satisfaction rating.
Our mission: Fast, simple and easy-to-use technology for birding. No clutter and no complexity. We want you focused on the birds with your binoculars, not searching through an iPod or iPhone for buried information.
Conservation: We annually donate at least 5% of company profits to The Nature Conservancy and other non-profits dedicated to the conservation, enjoyment and rehabilitation of birds.
Ethics: Our dedication to bird conservation drives us to provide information regarding the responsible use of powerful technology such as birdJam. Please read more about recommendations for responsibly using iPods in the field.
Eastern Time Zone: We are an Atlanta-based partnership. We feel tremendous personal gratification when our customers are delighted, and we will work with each of you to ensure you are happy and satisfied with birdJam.
