We are in the process of monitoring our buildings for bird strikes. Three buildings are being monitored. Volunteers would walk the perimeter of select buildings on a regular basis observing the ground and windows for evidence of bird/building collisions following a prescribed protocol. Volunteer will complete and submit a form on a regular basis. Observations should be done as close to sunrise/dawn and sunset/dusk as possible.
The data collected will be sued to help inform decision making regarding prevention of bird/building collisions on campus.
