The Happy City Birds project by Thomas Winther is habitat initiative that strives to make homes readily available for displaced birdies.

Winther notices that the expansion of cities meant more paved streets and buildings that removed the nesting areas for urban-dwelling wildlife. His project consists of building colorfully painted bird houses from recycled material and hanging them all over the cities of Denmark, Odense, Kolding, Copenhagen and Aarhus. Not only does he place the wooden homes on trees and rooftops, but he also makes them into designs to call attention to his project. Winther believes that birds are very necessary to the ecosystem and help to spread seeds for plants.

The Happy City Birds project has created over 250 homes to give the avian population a place to mingle. Stats for Joyful Urban Birdie Shelters Trending: Older & Chilly
