hello everyone,

an embargoed study was published a couple days ago in The Condor that
examines a question that i am sure, many of us have wondered about: do
wildlife-friendly yards increase bird-window collisions?

this paper is one of the very few published studies on bird-building
collisions, and it relies on thousands of observations made by citizen
scientists -- perhaps some of you helped collect these data?

in this piece, the author of the study offers some suggestions for how to
make your dwellings safer for wild birds, and i add a few more suggestions
of my own.

cheers,
