Read a recent article by Marcus Gee from The Globe and Mail.

Although spring migration is winding down, we are still receiving the odd calls about locally breeding migratory birds striking windows. For some reason, Cedar Waxwings this past week have had it rough! Five known strikes all in the downtown core alone. Marcus Gee’s article is a reminder that although FLAP has been officially collecting birds since 1993 and has really brought the issue of bird/window collisions out into the open, there is a an even greater need now for public education and awareness. More and more glass towers are constructed every year. We can make a difference in these birds’ lives, but we cannot do it without your help.
