Michele Raffin created a bird sanctuary in her back yard. Now she wakes up to the sound of 362 exotic birds singing their songs, and spends her days caring for them, breeding the rare species, and generally hanging out with an unusually large bird population.

You can read much more about Raffin's work in a The New York Times profile.

Pandemonium Aviaries has an excellent website, complete with bird webcams!
