There are some little huts in the forest that are designed to observe wildlife. They are made up of a roof and two walls. One of the walls has some holes in it so that you can peer outside without bothering the wildlife. How should these huts be tagged?

It renders on OSM Carto as a pair of binoculars. https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/478149348

I've used building=yes there also, but I don't believe that's necessary.

PS - it needn't necessarily be for birds, but can take the same tag.

"bird_hide" is definitely the most popular, but "wildlife_hide" is also used: https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=hide#values .
