The EREN Bird-window Collisions Project
An interesting scientific research study is ongoing testing the hypothesis that the magnitude of bird window collisions (BWCs) within and among urban areas reflects landscape structure and functional connectivity. Basically the study is a collaboration among numerous sites in North America to examine the relationship of buildings and their unique surrounding environment and how these factors affect the amount of BWCs. It is an interesting study lead by Stephan B. Hagar, Department of Biology, Augustana College, Illinois and Bradley J. Cosentino, Department of Biology, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, New York.
