I am a PNW native my husband is from England. My super power is attention to detail while his is telling English jokes nobody gets. We enjoy nature and bird-watching. Our vacations often include hot spots for birding. Our recent visit to Equador's cloud-forest in Mindo added some spectacular birds to our list! We travel and use Airbnb just like you, so we understand what it's like to be a guest. If you have questions, get in touch. We can't wait to host you in our private backyard cottage oasis! We will even share our yard bird list with you!
