A Crashless Course in Avoiding Bird Collisions

Facebooktwitter

Window collisions are a serious and often fatal problem for many of our migrant songbirds. But as Heidi Trudell explains in the most recent issue of Birder’s Guide to Gear, not every collision is a fait accompli.

Heidi’s article contains a wealth of information on what are currently understood to be the best methods (and materials) for making windows visible to birds, and it includes some nice example photos so that you can see how the methods are properly implemented. It also does some myth-busting (e.g., raptor silhouettes decals are ineffective).

You can read “A Crashless Course in Avoiding Bird Collisions” by clicking here. Online access to all issues of Birder’s Guide is just one of the free service provided to the birding community by the American Birding Association.

    Michael, is it possible to post this on our Audubon group website? I was working on a page with suggestions, but this has it all. would it be permissible to post the link at least? I want people to have this information!
