Bird-Killing Buildings

Ecojustice, Canada's leading legal champion for a healthy environment , as they call themselves , pointed readers of their Facebook page to this case before the courts. Toronto's Worst Bird Killing Buildings  .

We all know the fate of birds that fly into our picture windows at home . Imagine how many die on the thousands of windows that cover the high-rise office buildings in any city across the world. This blog post by Surfbirds brings it home.

By the way , putting a silhouette of any flying bird on your window does prevent impacts. This is especially important on south and west facing windows....or windows that line up on opposing walls.

  1. So many buildings entire surface is glass. I often wondered if birds often crashed into them.
