Window collision documented by Jessie Griswold

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

Disclaimer: This presentation will include pictures of dead birds.
