Abstract

Bird window strikes are estimated to cause approximately 1 billion deaths each year in the United States alone. In 2015 the University Inn experienced an extremely high volume of bird window collisions resulting in over 1000 bird deaths. This event led to the formation of the Utah State University Bird-Strike Committee. This student-led research group studies bird window strikes on campus and identifies high-risk areas where bird strikes are most prevalent. Using this information the bird strike committee researches and provides information on how to mitigate bird deaths in these problematic areas. We present here the research carried out during the spring semester of 2017.
