ONLINE Course: Audubon at Home: Protecting Birds from Window Collisions

Yellow-breasted chat window-collision by Jessie Griswold

March 9, 2021 , 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Pre-registration is required by 12 p.m. CST Monday, March 8th, and space is limited.

Registration is now closed. Check out our other upcoming events here.

While this is a free event, please support our work if you are able by making a tax-deductible donation at alaudubon.org/give.

Join Jessie Griswold to hear about the second leading cause of bird deaths in North America. Using data collected through window collision monitoring in Birmingham during migratory seasons in 2018 and 2019, we’ll learn why birds fly into glass and examine a variety of solutions you can do at home that are inexpensive, simple to apply, and will reduce or eliminate bird window collisions. A handout for guidelines on mitigation strategies as well as links to a variety of resources can be found at alaudubon.org/window-collisions/.

Disclaimer: This presentation will include pictures of dead birds.

*Special offer: Everyone who registers for this class will be entered into a drawing to win a roll of Feather Friendly® DIY Tape. These window markers are an easy-to-use solution for preventing bird collisions with residential glass surfaces, generously donated by Feather Friendly®. Winners will be notified using the email address they used to sign up.

Where and when do we meet? This online course meets on Tuesday, March 9th, from 6–7 p.m. CST. It will be roughly an hour-long online webinar with time at the end for questions.

Registration: To register, click on the button above. If you’re not an Alabama Audubon member and don’t yet have a username and password, simply click the “X” on the pop up and fill out the basic form. If you do have a login, please use it as this helps us tremendously on our end! You should receive an automated email upon registering.

Please note, you will receive a separate email with the Zoom webinar instructions before the class (once registration closes). You’ll need the link or webinar ID and password from this email to join the meeting. In the event the link does not work for you, you may need to go to the Zoom website and manually enter the webinar ID and password. Please double check your email and make sure it’s a valid email address prior to completing your registration. We’ve had several kick-backs when sending the Zoom meeting instructions out to registrants, and you won’t be able to join the webinar without this information. Thanks!

Questions? Email the Programs Assistant.


I did not receive the email with the Zoom meeting instructions. Please double-check the email address you enter when registering for the online event as that is where the instructions will be sent (once registration closes). You may need to add us to your email provider’s safe sender list in the event it goes to spam. Also, please contact us by the morning of the event so that we have time to address your issue as generally you should have received the email right after registration closes.

The link doesn’t appear to be working. You may need to go to the Zoom website (https://zoom.us) and manually enter the webinar ID and password. Also, wait until just a couple of minutes before the meeting is supposed to begin to try to enter the meeting. It will not work if you try to join the meeting half an hour before it’s scheduled to begin, for instance. You can also check to make sure your computer meets the system requirements by clicking here.

Will this be recorded, and will I have the ability to view them later? We will be recording this session to make available on our website.

Is there a waiting list? We do not have waiting lists for our online events at this time.
