We've all heard it: that heartbreaking "thud" of
a bird hitting our window. Did you know it is estimated
that this happens somewhere between 100 million
and one BILLION times each year in North America?!
Last year alone the Wisconsin Humane Society admitted
more than 200 birds like Peabody
who were involved in window collisions.
also know that our cities present a largely ignored
problem to migrating birds? At night, migrating
birds collide with lighted window glass or are confused
by building lights and circle these buildings until
they drop, exhausted, onto one of the city streets
below. The next morning, the survivors may either
fall victim to urban scavengers or can't find their
way out of the canyons of glass, concrete and steel.
In confusion, some then collide with windows reflecting
the urban landscape.
help prevent the loss of our precious songbirds!
