AnimalPerspectives.Com is a website that strives to provide reliable information about wildlife — nature is for everyone!

Hi! I’m Orietta. The creator of Animal Perspectives.

I own and produce all of the content on BirdsNatureLife.

BirdsNatureLife is a website that I created with the intention of writing about those three main aspects of my life (and yours)!

Bird watching is for everyone regardless of prior knowledge, age, ability, or resources. I have two goals at BirdsNatureLife:

  1. Share the joy of birding with everyone especially those in underrepresented communities. 
  2. 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!

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!

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
