50 beautiful custom birdhouses swing from the Tree of Life in Audubon Park

So, this is awesome. You’ve got to see this.

Our family has been climbing the limbs of the Tree of Life in Audubon Park for generations. It’s where my husband takes the girls on a lazy weekend afternoon. They climb and hide and play.

A grande old dame.


Whether it’s been a while, or you have yet to go, now is the time. From now until Sunday, December 22, when you visit the Tree of Life at Audubon Park, you will notice something very special swinging from her branches–50 beautiful custom birdhouses, each inspired by some of the most interesting and unique Airbnb property listings all around the world.


Airbnb is a community-driven hospitality company that offers the ultimate home experience to the ultimate traveler. It’s revolutionizing the way we travel the world and discover new places.

“We created these birdhouses inspired by real Airbnb homes as a metaphor for the hospitality about which our company is built:  Our hospitality is completely individual and designed by our hosts who know that making people (or birds!) feel at home any where in the world comes from warmth, intuition and an attention to detail,” said Amy Curtis-McIntyre, CMO, Airbnb.  “We love the world’s real travelers and this is an invitation to travel in a new way.”

Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects us to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 33,000 cities and 192 countries.

Please view this magnificent video about the art and philosophy of what “home” means to each of us and let it inspire you to fly where your wings take you.

What does home mean to you? Ask the kids. They just might surprise you.
