It is important for bird hides to be carefully designed, properly constructed and well-maintained. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and some hides have been poorly planned and built and, despite original good intentions, often fall into disrepair.
Sadly, many hides are also not accessible to everyone, such as people who are visually impaired, in wheelchairs, or the elderly who have difficulty walking. In order to assist potential bird hide builders with the building of bird hides, “A guide to build universally accessible bird hides” was developed and can be downloaded below.
The document of 31 pages contains information about the planning, construction and maintenance of bird hides, as well as sketches, technical drawings and more than 40 photographs to illustrate the text.
