One of the many birds found throughout the Mississippi Flyway
Hundreds of millions of birds are killed in window collisions in the U.S. each year. Audubon Minnesota has documented mortality in over 100 species along the Mississippi Flyway alone. Using this research, they have created a plan to combat unnecessary bird fatalities.
Having already organized a successful “Lights Out” program (which received critical funding from a 2008 TogetherGreen Innovation Grant), Audubon Minnesota will utilize their 2010 Innovation Grant to educate a specific audience of building owners, managers, designers, and architects about the issue, using Bird-Safe Building Design Guidelines.
