Hi! I’m Orietta. The creator of Animal Perspectives.
I own and produce all of the content on AnimalPerspectives.Com.
AnimalPerspectives.Com is a website that I created with the intention to provide reliable information about the environment, nature, and birding.
Bird watching is for everyone regardless of prior knowledge, age, ability, or resources. I have two goals at Animal Perspectives:
- Share the joy of birding with everyone especially those in underrepresented communities.
- Share information and details critical to bird conservation.
I believe that everyone should be a birder, and it’s my mission to bring everyone I meet to the bird-side of life! It’s awesome over here!
Here — on the bird-side of life — it’s all about the birds, and for a good reason! Bird watching has carried me through the most difficult times in my life, and for that, I owe them. That’s why I write about birds.

P.S. I am required by law to publish everything below — really, I’m just a writer, and I leave the technical stuff to the techies!
