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.
