Our windows are killers, and they need to be watched.
Millions of birds are killed each year when they collide with the windows on our buildings. With numbers like that, it's important to learn as much as we can and address the problem. That's why the University of Alberta is investigating bird-window collisions, and we can help.
The university's Birds and Windows Project collects data on window-caused bird deaths, and the data comes from citizen science, which means that by tracking and reporting these deaths at our homes, we can hopefully help find solutions to the problem.

Don't let those windows out of your sight.
