Abstract

Millions of birds die each year from colliding with glass windows. Our research group collected data via a census survey for over year on USU campus. We used this data to pinpoint windows and areas that are the deadliest for birds, and collected window area and tree density and type information to make our findings generalizable. We are using this data to encourage USU to take efforts to mitigate the problem of bird window collisions and to be a leading example as we take this project to other Utah universities. We are also using our findings to develop and test new methods for mitigation.
