GeoCache Clue

Bird’s Eye View
Inside forests the adventurous find
Animals and birds of every kind
People, kids, families, invigorate…
Within my closed walls actuate
All those that wish to visit me.
Your hands are the key
To secrets untold
Will tiny birds angry scold?
Your mind will unlock the door
Perhaps, challenges yet are four
Hint: added clue on
