The birdhouses in Bolinao, Pangasinan has been attracting not only tourists but also migratory birds. The bird sanctuary is now being considered by travelers as a place for relaxation. Fresh air, birds chirping and the sound of the ocean waves are the perfect gifts from nature for unwinding.
In a story by ABS CBN, a certain Charlie Ledesma expressed that he feels relaxed and rejuvenated the moment he is in the area; listening to the harmonious melody of the birds.
Behind the creation of the birdhouses is a bird hobbyist, Michael Parayno. He started his passion for birds when he was still young. According to him, as a boy, he once rescued a wounded bird and from that moment on, he started to build birdhouses which serve as shelters not only for his pet birds, but also for all kinds of birds flocking within the vicinity.
He has been creating birdhouses for 20 years now and it even became a business venture for him in America.
Parayno added that he doesn’t allow tourists to get near the birdhouses as this may scare the nesting birds. Tourists can only take pictures and enjoy the scenic flocking of birds in the birdhouses.
There are cottages for rent near the birdhouses where tourists can enjoy both watching different species of birds and the view of the West Philippine Sea.
Bolinao, Pangasinan which is also popular for its Patar White Sand Beach, can be reached within 2-3 hours travel time from Subic–Clark–Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) Tarlac Exit.
