How To Help

A third way to help would be to collect and compile information on dead and injured birds that have collided with tall buildings. Surveying would occur early mornings during Spring and Fall migration. The earlier the better, since birds migrate at night, and clean up crews might throw away specimens during morning clean ups. This is already being done in Toronto, Ottawa, Chicago, Cleveland, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, and New York.
