Description

An Invisible Terror: Birds and Window Collisions

Brandon Hedrick, evolutionary and conservation biologist at Harvard University and collaborating scientist with the Hitchcock Center

Friday, November 17, 6:30-7:30 pm

Following deforestation, window collisions are the number one, human-made cause of bird mortality, with estimates as high as 1 billion birds per year in the United States alone. By identifying areas that are particularly dangerous for birds, we can better mitigate this problem by targeting specific windows and locations for intervention. Of particular concern are the glass breezeways connecting buildings. He will also share some of the solutions designed to avoid this problem. Come learn more about the Amherst Bird Strikes Project and how you can help us protect our local and migratory birds. There will be time at the end for questions and comments. FREE, Registration
