Travis Audubon has kicked off its Bird Building Collision Study for the migratory season!
We are raising awareness about the dangers that building glass and lighting pose to the health of migratory birds in the Austin area. Our Research Team will be out on patrol through May capturing data about birds that have been killed or injured by collisions. We’d like to extend a huge thanks to all of our amazing volunteers! This project wouldn’t be possible without their hard work and dedication to our cause.
If you witness or see evidence of a bird building collision at your home, office, or around town, we invite you to contribute to our study by reporting your sighting on our iNaturalist project: Austin Bird Building Collisions. You can learn more about our project and bird collision solutions here.
