My family and I are all a bunch of bird lovers. There are few things that make me as happy as waking up and hearing the different calls and songs of birds as they move through their morning, and I love camping just because you get to hear so many night birds that you otherwise would never know were out there.
I’ve always loved the idea of having my own backyard bird habitat, but I assumed it would be a lot of work.
We recently stayed at a local Airbnb that is a certified bird sanctuary, which kind of surprised me. I was surprised mostly because it just seemed like a regular house with a pretty regular yard, and I assumed that anything with the name “bird sanctuary” attached must be kind of, you know, fancy.
I still don’t know the steps involved in becoming an official bird sanctuary, but after we came back home, I decided to find out what we could do to turn our backyard into a backyard bird sanctuary of our own.
It turns out it’s not even that hard!
